Open URL of PDF in DT window?

I’m trying to open the original URL of a captured PDF in DT, but not sure how (if) this could be achieved. I’ve tried this:

tell application id "DNtp"
	repeat with theRecord in (selection as list)
		set theURL to URL of theRecord
		do JavaScript "window.location='" & theURL & " ';" in think window 1
	end repeat
end tell

Probably this doesn’t work because think window 1 is not a browser when viewing a PDF (so do Javascript does not work). Any ideas how I could make this work?

It works when opening the URL in an extra tab:

tell application id "DNtp"
	repeat with theRecord in (selection as list)
		-- Only do this when there isn't already an extra tab open
		if (count tabs of think window 1) < 2 then
			set theURL to URL of theRecord
			open tab for URL theURL in think window 1
			set current tab of think window 1 to (last tab of think window 1)
		end if
	end repeat
end tell

Currently setting the URL of a window/tab is only possible if a web page is already shown. But the next release will support simple scripts like this one:

tell application id "DNtp"
	set theWindow to think window 1
	set theRecord to content record of theWindow
	set URL of theWindow to URL of theRecord
end tell

Great! When you mention ‘next release’ do you mean next minor (3.8.3) or major release?

There won’t be a major one anytime soon.

Just confirming this now works in 3.8.3 - thanks @cgrunenberg !
