I am using Itextshar.dll 5.x version for creating .pdf in web application (asp.net 3.5)
.pdf is created, successfully
It now downloaded to the client first, then asking for save/open- but always saved first
then the user has to click on the saved file to open this,
I want the file to open directly in the browser, so that user can easilsy view/ print it
(my clients use IE 6.0 to Firefox and Chrome as browsers)
all helps will be appreciated

When your client installing Adobe Reader (or other pdf readers) it will install plug-ins to the browsers, that's why viewing directly in browser is possible. But if those add-ons/plug-ins are disabled (or not installed) then viewing .pdf directly in browser
is not possible.
Hope this helps.

The workaround is, create PDF and save it on server (instead of downloading) and open pdf in iframe.
