Setting the look of Acrobat Reader in Delphi

I am thinking about embedding Acrobat Reader 7.x as an ActiveX component in my Delphi app (BDS 2006).  I am trying to do a 'thumbnail' effect and show a minuature view of the PDF pages and so I need a fairly clean display.  I got the menus turned off easily BUT I can't find any way to disable the 'Pages', 'Attachments' and 'Comments' tab, which is really cluttering things up.  Is there any way to turn this off via ActiveX (or do I need to switch to OLE).  Also any suggestions generally on settings such as setPageMode, setLayoutMode, etc. would be appreciated.

I m sorry but didn't get what exactly you want.

Pdf1.setPageMode('thumbs'); // other possible values -> none, bookmarks
Pdf1.setZoom(25);

Sorry if my orignal question was confusing.  What I really need is to turn off the tabs which appears on the left side of the Adobe Acrobat Reader display.  The tabs in question are labeled "Pages", "Attachments" and "Comments".  The reason I need this is that I want a small, embedded Acrobat Reader window in my app and the tab takes up a big chunk of space when you have such a small viewing area.

Thanks for the 'thumbs' tip, though.  I can't seem a list of the valid parameters for functions like setPageMode or setLayoutMode.

Hi,

It's navigation tabs and the area in which all these tabs displayed is navigation pane.

I feel that we can close this tabs / navigation pane (F6) but can not remove it. However, if it is closed it doesn't occupy that much area.

I am assuming there is no way to programatically remove the tab/navigation of the default Adobe Acrobate Reader ActiveX control and so I am going to accept atul answer.  Thanks again for your help.
