Open URL in Window - load content dynamically
On click I need to display a new window which contains the help manual of the application. This document is in html or mht format which I'm saving in a binary file (business ruleset). From the section I was calling 'Open URL in Window' in the action and calling an activity to launch a window with the content which was uploaded in the binary file. In the activity I'm able to open the binary file but facing difficulty in displaying the content on the window. Any pointers would be helpful.
I was able to display the content in a window using the following -
1. A binary file to upload the document in htm format
2. Display the content through iframe.
The problem here is - some of the characters like single quotes are displayed as special characters. I was also able to display the pdf as well on the browser rather than downloading it but the business is not convinced as pdf has got a page break which would break the continuity of the images etc. They wanted to go with something like html. Do we have any other format which doesn't break the continuity and can be uploaded in the binary file?
