How do I do page rotation using Adobe AxAcroPDF ActiveX in VB.NET 2005

Hi folks,

I am able to display a PDF on a form using the Adobe Acrobat Reader ActiveX (AxAcroPDF) successfully.

Is there a way to rotate the displayed PDF by 90 degrees ?

regards

Hi!
I'm not sure can that componet in Acrobat SDK do that, see object browser, press F2 on the project but
http://sourceforge.net/projects/itextsharp/
You can use this lib to produce a rotated temporary copy of your PDF and display it.
There is a lot of VB samples in this all download + the Sharp C source of it.

Matti, thanks for comment but alas not a solution.  The itextsharp from what I can see relies on the presence of a fully licenced acrobat install.... rather than just the reader.

I've given up on trying to do the PDF rotation and have settled on using PNG files.

No forthcoming solutions form the expert world.
Changed idea of using PDF files to a different format.

The Itextsharp is independent it does not need any Acrobat software.
Ofcause reader to show it or the adobe SDK.

Doesn't the Adobe SDK require a licence ?

As I know no, of cause every US software has some sort of licence, but this is free.

I have a redistribution lisence for Acrobat, it does not cost but you need to apply.
Itextshartp is opensource.
