We have developed a Web Dynpro application that is capable of opening PDF files stored in a content repository. Instead of having a specific view to display the PDF file we use the following logic:
i_filename = v_filename
i_content = it_tab_doc-content
i_mime_type = '/Desktop' ).
Now if we open the PDF with IE8 (without download manager) everything goes fine and the document is displayed. When we use IE9 (with download manager) the scenario is different - the file download keeps interrupting and we need to repeat the operation several times before we can see the document.
Are you aware of difficulties when using IE9?
Thanks in advance.
