Adobe don't support the reader ocx as a developer tool. But The SetPageMode works if you push in the strings below
SetPageMode — Sets the page mode in which a document is opened: "display only pages", "pages and thumbnails", or "pages and bookmarks".
This information was found in Adobe IACOverview here.


I don't know what the keywords for SetLayoutMode are however

Hope this helps
