Ink Toolbars on non tablet in Word 2003


I'm developing a Tablet application, and I'm trying to set up a new toolbar for Word 2003 that involves a few of the Ink options you get on the Tablet PC in Word 2003.
However, I'm developing on a normal desktop and those toolbars don't show up in Word 2003 on that.

Is there any way to get them, or will I have to somehow develop this on the tablet?

Who is Participating?
They are known to Word on my PC, but this macro fails.

Sub ShowToolbar()
Dim cb As CommandBar
For Each cb In Application.CommandBars
     If Left$(cb.Name, 4) = "Ink " Then
        cb.Enabled = True
        cb.Visible = True
    End If
Next cb
End Sub

Setting the Enabled property is not effective, so an Automation error is set on the attempt to set the toolbars visible.

I don't know what the toolbars do, but I suspect that they wouldn't work on a PC, so are disabled by design.

Okay, thanks.

I'll just have to create a template on the tablet.
Tiny screen and keyboard, joy.
Maybe if I can find a USB keyboard I can use that and my PC monitor.

Anyway, thanks for trying, points are yours.


Thanks Janine. That sounds like the way to go. Good luck
