Don’t do this. Scribd’s PDF viewer is an impressive piece of Flash, but
it’s underpowered compared to real PDF viewers like the Adobe Reader
plugin. Also, iPhone and Palm users can display PDF files but not
Flash, and I think screen readers would have an easier time with PDF
files.

Just serve up the straight PDF file and don’t worry about Flash.

Thanks & regards

Or, at least provide both options to visitors. As a Safari user I don’t
even need a plugin to have a great PDF viewing experience (even
surpasses that of the Adobe Reader plugin IMHO). Being forced to view
PDF inside Flash would just serve to irritate me to the point of never
using a site again. Or at least not without a lot of grumbling and
cursing of the site developer.

Thank you for your idea guys
I got the solution to show the file in iframe tag is that good
way to
show the file in iframe or any better solution in rails to show the pdf
content.

It’s really simple, and it isn’t Flash, just add into the view,

It doesn’t have to be in an iframe – you can serve it just like an HTML
file. Rails doesn’t come into the issue.
