    I came across a pdf yesterday that did something amazing.

    When I opened the pdf a new browser tab automatically opened in Firefox and it went to this guys homepage.

    And everytime I tried to hit the scroll down on the pfd it opened another tab with the same link in firefox.

    My mind is racing with ideas about what to do with this but I have no idea how to make a pdf file do this.

    Any ideas?

    thanks

    I understand that, but the ebook is empty.

    I'm looking for an explanation about how opening the ebook itself causes the browser to open with a link and scrolling in the ebook also causes the browser to open with a link.

    Here's more information/tutorial on how to "set triggers" like send an email/open a url for user's action like mouse up/mouse down,etc..,

    Note : You need Acrobat to create actions. Not sure any other PDF creators has this option on it.
