Passing Variable from one form to another and opening pdf file
Posted on 2007-07-25
"form1" = with tab control(using Tab4)
"cboAdobeFiles" - combobox this contains a list of pdf files...
I have code loading the pdf file names ok
Command Button = "cmdOpAdobe"
code for command button
Public f3 As FormAdobe
Public Sub ShowForm3()
If f3 Is Nothing Then
f3 = New FormAdobe
AddHandler f3.Closed, AddressOf f3_Closed
When I press this button I'am opening a form called "formAdobe"
I have an ActiveXcontrol for Adobe on this form.
"formAdobe" = -- has an activexcontrol called "AxPdf1"
Pdfs are stored in dir "C:\PdfPages"
What I need:
After I select an Item in the listbox on Form1
I press the command button and it opens "formAdobe"
A NEED A variable passing the listbox selection so the
source for the "AxPdf1" is set to the path specified with the listbox(variable).
In the load event of "formAdobe" I'am trying to set the source of the activeXcontrol from the value in the comboxbox on form1
Private Sub FormAdobe_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
' Me.AxPdf1.LoadFile("C:\PROGRAM FILES\PDFPAGES\00010.PDF")
My problem is passing the variable from form1 to FormAdobe ?
