    Hi guys, I'm having some trouble opening a pdf file when a gridbuttoncolumn is pressed. This is my code I have to open it
    if (e.CommandName == "Ver")
                 string Servidor = Request.Url.GetLeftPart(UriPartial.Authority);
                 string fullUrl = Servidor + Session["strUrl"];
    But when I run it I get the next error message "The relative virtual path 'http:/localhost:50422/docs/28-grant application.pdf' is not allowed here." I save the file previously and now I want to open it but I can't do'it. Can you point me to the right direction please.
    This is my code to save the document.
    var usuarioSesion = (Usuario)Session["usuarioSesion"];
               var dbContext = new BD_SSEGUAEntities();
               string strUrl;
               int exp = Convert.ToInt32(Session["ExpEmp"]);
               int folio = Convert.ToInt32(Session["Foliosol"]);
               var newDoc = new Documento();
               foreach (UploadedFile file in RadUpload1.UploadedFiles)
                  // var ResultSol = new Solicitud();
                   var fileName = folio + "-" + file.GetName().ToLower();
                   file.SaveAs(MapPath(@"~/docs/" + fileName));
                   strUrl = "/docs/" + fileName;
                   //MapPath(@"/docs/")+file.GetName();// + ResultSol.fiIdSolicitud + "-" +
                   if (RadUpload1.InvalidFiles.Count == 0 && RadComboBox1.SelectedValue!=null )
                           var doc = new Documento
                                             fiIdSolicitud = folio,
                                             fiAnioSolicitud = (short) DateTime.Now.Year,
                                             fiIdTipoDocumento = (byte) TipoDoc,
                                             fiIdEdoDocto = 1,
                                             fdFchRegDocto = DateTime.Now,
                                             fiUsrRegDocto = usuarioSesion.Expediente,
                                             fcURLdocumento = strUrl,
                           Alerta("El documento se guardó de forma correcta");
                       catch (Exception ex)
                       Alerta("Captura los todos los datos");
                   //  else
                   //    Alerta("Agrega un documento");

    If you have the PDF file on your local machine or stored on a server you can add the path to the button's click event. You can do something as simple as the following, assuming you have acrobat installed.
    Response.Redirect("URL of the pdf file");

    All the best,
