MSWord Viewer in VB App
Posted on 2001-07-17
Can anyone suggest something for my program?
I'm using VB6 against an SQL Server database.
I have a form which brings up a MSWord document.
I need to have the document readable, not editable.
Also,the document must be read-only.
Also, I don't need any toolbars, rulers,etc.
Currently, I'm using an OLE object to display the MSWord document. But I had problems adding scroll bars to allow the user to view the entire document.
I tried several things: The Browser Control,but it offered too much - tool bars,etc.
I tried the Oframer example project from Microsoft,but it too gave me too much on the form.
And,with the current OLE object,I can't get rid of the rulers when I display a MSWord object inside the OLE container.
I need something like the word viewer on a form.
It should be a viewer, no toolbars, rulers, etc.
Just present the document to the user in read-only form.
