Creating hyperlink to local Excel file


Can you please advise best way to insert a hyperlink into a PDF that opens a local Excel file.

I have the PDF and Excel file in the same folder. When I click on the hyperlink in the PDF, it should open the Excel file in the same directory called “workbook.xlsx”



You can achieve it using different ways. For example, you can use FileHyperlink and set it against TextFragment.Hyperlink property. Also, you can embed JavaScript to open Excel file:

Document doc = new Document(dataDir + "sample.pdf");
TextFragmentAbsorber absorber = new TextFragmentAbsorber("Link to File");
Page page = doc.Pages[1];
// Add button
Field field = new ButtonField(page, absorber.TextFragments[1].Rectangle);
// Set ButtonField actions
string fieldName = field.PartialName;
string opendocscript = "app.openDoc(\"/D/TestDocument2.pdf\");";
field.Actions.OnPressMouseBtn = new JavascriptAction(opendocscript);
// Save document
doc.Save(dataDir + "OpenPDFFile.pdf");
