Accessing a PDF via a Commandbutton

Hello.  I am trying to create a commandbutton on a VF page that will open a PDF in a separate browser.  I know that I have to upload the PDF to the Documents object - but I am not sure what to do beyond that.  Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

After putting the pfd on document folder, on onclick event of <apex:commandButton>  use window.open method and give the path of the docmunet folder where the pdf is stored.

For example-

<apex:commandButton value="Convert to PDF"  onClick="window.open('/apex/orderReportPDF?id={!Opportunity.Id}');" />

Hope this helps.
