Most of the time in this forum might be spent asking for more details (relevant blocks, aia, screenshots, ...).

in this example the target link is known! (he puts directly the adresse of the pdf document)
in my example, the page contains a list of link ti pdf files (whitch are stored from a data base)
how can i display them in the webviewer ?

Is it your html file ? If so, adjust the links accordingly, as above

As inidicated above in the link to Taifun's pdf page, modify the links generated in your php page to include:

"https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=" before the url to the pdf

This works

Can you provide a link to one of your pdf files ? (as generated by your php page)
