On button click I had written a code to open pdf file which is working properly only the thing I want is open in acrobat reader instead of asking open/save dialog box .
I had used process.start() but it is not working on IIS . I don't want in another browser .


Can I disable save,copy,print of pdf file.

Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;filename=" + filepath);

Make sure you add the following headers in the reponse:
Content-type: application/pdf<br />
Content-Disposition: inline; filename="yourfile.pdf"

Actual opening the pdf in a reader is still up to the client browser. Depending on what program is associated with pdf (if any) and the user didn't disable it.

Good luck!

Could you click "improve question" and add your code? Did you also try another browser?
