    Im hoping this is simple, but im fairly confused as to what is going on. I am launching a PDF from an Imagebutton in an android activity using a piece of code I copied from elsewhere in my app.
    Code (Text):
    1. if (v==imagebutton20) {
    3.                 File file = new File("/sdcard/documents/20.pdf");
    4.                   if (file.exists()) {
    5.                         Uri path = Uri.fromFile(file);
    6.                         Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
    7.                         intent.setDataAndType(path, "application/pdf");
    8.                         intent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP);
    10.                         try {
    11.                             startActivity(intent);
    12.                             overridePendingTransition(R.anim.zoom_enter, R.anim.zoom_exit);
    13.                         }
    14.                         catch (ActivityNotFoundException e) {
    16.                         }
    17.                   }
    18.             }   //end of   load
    The pdf loads fine but when i press back the activity that launched the pdf isnt show, instead it returns to the activity before. I have tried commenting out the

    but the same effect. What am i missing? Sorry but i couldnt make sense of the official android guide, must be having a thick day!
