Controlling pdf toolbar in Chrome

Post by Jeff_Reynolds »

When I create an xref to a pdf file, how do I set the attributes to pass the attributes to suppress the toolbar etc.

HTML would be

Code: Select all

<embed
  src="http://URL_TO_PDF.com/pdf.pdf#toolbar=0&navpanes=0&scrollbar=0"
  width="425" height="425" />

Hi Jeff,

That original <embed> structure you showed was probably for embedding the PDF directly in the HTML output.
Your solution seems to be by creating a link to the PDF which is not exactly the same thing but at least it works both in HTML-based and PDF-based outputs.
You could also embed directly HTML content in DITA content for the HTML based outputs:

Yes you are right, I was focused on the attributes (everything after #) which will suppress the tool bar for both an xref to a pdf and a pdf embedded in a webhelp topic.

Thanks for your quick response!
