    Hi all

    I want to display a pdf document inside a modal popup. Opening the pdf by linking it lets the user inadvertently leave the web site. However, in a modal, clicking the X in the corner of the popup keeps the user on the site.

    Note: I already have page and module content displaying in popups. That's not the issue. The problem is getting a pdf to do the same. Are there any alternatives short of turning the pdf into a jpg or png? This is not a good choice because it would require constant attention as the pdf documents change frequently.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    You could display the PDF file in an iframe (using the DNN Iframe module at Pop it up the way you are popping up modules.
