Word OLE Question

Hi

Could someone help with a bit of coding.

I'm using Ole to open Word in a Delphi 3 program, there's no problem opening Word, but it seems to have one bug bare and that is that Word opens up half size.

I would like it to open maximized, I've tried to code the WindowState as wdMaximized, but get error messages such as 'method not supported by automation etc', I just can't seem to find the correct syntax to achieve this.

Can anyone help please ?

Hi John,

you must use the AppMaximize method. Example:

  MsWord := CreateOleObject('Word.Basic');
  ...
  MSWord.AppMaximize;
  MSWord.AppShow;

Notice that calling AppMaximize BEFORE the AppShow method gives a better effect.
