It seems like regularly something comes up in the programming world that is requested by a client that should be easy, ends up proving to take more time, more money or both. So it is nice to find a solution to a problem that IS easy. This article is to show you how easy it is to use ASP.net web form to open up a PDF, set a value on a form and then send it back to the user’s browser. I have attached the project below if you want to download it. The first thing you need to do is go download iTextSharp.dll. I will be using visual basic (vb) for this project.Learn More

I currently build and manage a pro-bono site for Greenwood Christian Academy where they have a lot of PDF documents. The users click on documents for enrollment, calendars, educational forms, health documents, etc. Just recently they also announced an event that offers sponsorships. The question that has come up lately is how to use Google Analytics to track how many people view the pdf documents and how many people click on the sponsor links. This may sound simple but then I realized that Google does not track counts for links that go away from the site or to pdf views. Not accepting this as failure, I started looking around and came across a “cool” feature that Google offers called ‘_trackEvent’. You can use this for a multitude of things but I believe this is what I need. The key is to realize that you need to attach something to the <a href> before the actual redirect. Since I always use the pdf and external links with a target=’_blank’ I decided to attach an event handler to the <a href>. The problem is this could take a while, especially if you have a lot of links and pdf. Thank goodness for jquery. I attached the code below as close to the end of the page as possible (preferably right before the </body>). This script attaches a click event to every <a href> if there is a target=’_blank’. I then determine if it is a pdf or just a “plain” link.Learn More

If you have been following along in Part 1 you know that by now you will have a web service ready to be consumed in your project. Let’s continue on with this example and create a report that is hosted at Arvixe. (Concepts apply to most vendors). One thing to keep in mind with Arvixe this that testing your code report link is different than when you deploy it. I will get to that in a minute but let’s continue on.

Several of our Elgg users needed a way to display PDF files and other documents uploaded in their Elgg network. Since there was no tool available for that, I decided to develop a plugin that will let you display those types of documents and more. In this article, I will show you a step by step guide on how to how to embed PDF files and other documents in Elgg 1.8.
1. First, we are going to download a plugin from the Elgg Community called “SW Social Docs for Elgg 1.8″ here.
This is a plugin that will let you embed Adobe PDF, MS Word and MS PowerPoint files in your site.
2. After downloading unzip the file inside the folder “mod” and activate the plugin:
