i am using the following script to open a selected PDF file in the xpdf viewer, but  i am not successful.

answer file "PDF..."

if it is empty then exit top

put it into tFilename

XPDFViewer_Open "pdfviewer", the windowID of this stack

XPDFViewer_Set "pdfviewer", "filename",tFilename

XPDFViewer_Set "pdfviewer", "rect", (100,100,500,500)

XPDFViewer_Set "pdfviewer", "visible", TRUE

put xpdfviewer_Get("pdfviewer","rect")

The PDF viewer does not show up and the function pxdfviewer_get gives 0,0,0,0 back for the rect.

Is there something wrong with my script?
Or does anyone have working sample stack?
