Acrobat reader/viewer component

Have you seen this type of component ?
I´ve tried Adobe´s ActiveX, but they have only published 2 props....

miv,

what about just running the acrobat reader from your program?

Think it's very hard to find something, because they are very closed (not much information) for this program.

I´m using the acrobat reader at the moment, but need to add some functionality.
It´s hard to do when there´s no documentation for anything and the ActiveX control has almost no properties and functions.
I was hoping for some 3 party component which was or could be extended...maybe it´s impossible to find one ?

miv,
 I just heard about an OCX which is with the acrobat reader 3.0 But i'm afraid for the third party component, because *.pdf file is a adobe secret... But I found some sort of *.pdf file description at http://www.wotsit.org/

Sorry, misunderstanding.
We´re a member of the Adobe developer group and gets the ocx from there and that´s the one I´m using now.
But I was looking for something NOT made by Adobe ?

ZifNabCommented:
miv, think there don't exist third party tools...

Maybe have a look at structure of pdf file and create a component yourself? But I think it isn't aload...

Lot of work dough.

Sorry, Zif.

Why don't you use OLEContainer?

I will still need some doc. to know what services the component offers.
Or is there any other way to get this information ?

I haven't tried it. You can also use DDE. See:
