I found the knowledge base article that describes the dsoframer control


does any one have some vb.net code samples they would be willing to share?

Watch Question

The DSOFramer work fine also with c#.
1. Register dsoframer.ocx (regsvr32 "path/dsoframer.ocx")
2. From your project in VS2003 make reference to dsoframer.ocx.
3. Add dsoframer.ocx to your toobox and put from toolbox to winform;
4. You got like - private AxDSOFramer.AxFramerControl axFControl;
5. In InitializeComponent(); to open existing document use:
"C://Doc.doc" - path to word document (.xls for Excel);
false - allow editing;
"Word.Document" - type of office application ("Excel.Sheet" or "Excel.Chart" for Excel);
Type.Missing - user name and password if not exists.
6. Run your WinForm and voila!!!
7. Ofcourse, play with properties and other control stuff.
8. Create new office document - axFControl.CreateNew (some technik).
9. With VB.NET should be some easy.

I've got the control to display and I can open a file ...I was just wondering if someone had an example that had some examples of using file functions, replacing text, etc...
