Hi All,

Can anyone show me how I can display PDF documents on my VB form??

I only need to show the document contents and the scrollbars only. The rest of the stuff like toolbars and bookmarks are not required.

Thanks

place a webbrowser control on your form and use the Navigate2 method to open the document.

You can add the pdf component to your VB project.

The component is listed as Acrobat Control for Active X (pdf.ocx) in the components. I assume you need to install Acrobat Reader for this component to exist on your machine and this control will need to be installed on users machine.

This control has properties that allow do specify if you want the toolbar and menu. The src property allows you to choose the pdf file you want to display.


Hope this helps in some way.
