I am trying to right an app that will allow me to drag items from a list box, combo box, grid, whatever,  onto a pdf that is open in an ActiveX control(pdf.ocx). So far I have had no success. I have the Acrobat SDK but the documentation and examples it provided leave a lot to be desired. Is this even possible and if so HOW?????????

Been there already. All they give you is a link to the Acrobat SDK, which as I said, isn't documented that well. It is starting to seem like this isn't possible. I find it hard to believe that there is no way to drag from a vb6 form onto a pdf, but no one I talk to seems to know how. If anyone else has any ideas, code samples, documentation, ANYTHING!!!!!, I would sure appreciate it. Untill then, I'll just keep trying. Thanks!!

A few links that might help:

They have 1225 articles regarding visual basic pdf support so if that isnt what you had in mind try searching around a little

I figured this out on my own using examples from the SDK. Had to create a PDF object in a child mdi form. In the dragdrop event of the form, loop through each field to get the field name. Create a javascript field object and set it to the current field with the field name. Get the Javascript field bounding rectangle coordinates. If the X and Y coordinates returned by the dragdrop event are within the bounding rectangle coordinates, then that is the field you dropped on. Set the value of the field to whatever you dropped and exit the loop.
