Hopefully, this is the right forum. I have a rather large pdf file whose images sort of jump while loading. I think it would be best to completely download the file prior to displaying the page. However, I don't think I am doing the right thing. I have read the posts for download progress bar, but none of them show how to determine if the file has completely downloaded. Looking for help. Thanks in advance.

I don't think you can do it in javacript. The display part could be, but that misses the point.
External files are quite hard to deal with.

I don't know how to do it. I tried loading it i an Iframe, but it came out. I'm sure there must be a way.

If the PDF is to be viewed in the browser, check the Adobe website as most PDF plugins are adobe. They may be able to help you load the file in a hidden frame/iframe/div etc.

Other than that I'm stumped.:)
