Reading different file format
Posted on 1998-10-20
I have an application with a Richtextbox that reads files through common dialog "showopen".
Rich Text boxes only support RTF and TXT file format. Assuming that every computer has got a Winword application software installed on it. How can I enable my VB application to read WinWord files? I do not want to use appactive to start winword. All I want is when the user choose a file(say winword) it will be opened in the Rich text Box(or is there other ways?). Do I need to purchase third party rendering software for it? If so how much would it cost and how good/stable is it?
Or if someone can show me a working example I will extremely grateful(And increase the points to 100 too).
