Embedding PDFs within rails page

guys,      hope, you well. In my rails page I want to embed a PDF in my page where there are other dynamic created informations.

I use the following code: <% path="#{RAILS_ROOT}/manual/test.pdf" %> <EMBED src="<%= path %>" width="450" height="450"></EMBED>

But it can not open the pdf file. Why? please take a hand in my code. regards.


I think for it to be publicly accessible, the file needs to be in the directory public. Try copying it to rails_app_root/public/manual/test.pdf and link to it. If you require it to be in a non-public place, you will need to use SendFile to send the file to the browser.

Hope this helps. mohit.
