Hi,
I have the following in my html file: The file was generated from php on the server.

<select id="MyFiles">
<option value='dir/file1.pdf'>file1</option>
<option value='dir/file2.pdf'>file2</option>
<option value='dir/file3.pdf'>file3</option>
</select>

In the above, "dir" is a folder above the html server root directory.
When the user clicks on a row I would like the pdf to open in a separate tab. What jquery or javascript do I need to do this?

Thank you,
Joe

And there's problem with where you have the files.

You can't access files located above the web root from the web. And, if you could, those URLs would be wrong. wink.gif
