I need to disable / hide the adobe floating toolbar (small gray toolbar appears after moving mouse)

I use the vb.net object "AxAcroPDF1" and I need to ensure user are not able to copy the document. I already secured the pdf so print-out is disabled but how to disable save option?

Code for vb.net was answered in this question:

i copy paste this one from previous post here too..  all tho its not probably aswer you looking for.


hmm yes this seems like it does not work correcly AxAcroPDF1.setShowToolbar(False)
maybe its bug or something, according guide it should work like that.

i checked #toolbar=0&navpanes=0 it seems to work in webpage, so maybe if you try this

add WebBrowser1 component to project and load pdf like this

 Dim fileurl As New Uri(OpenFileDialog1.FileName & "#toolbar=0&navpanes=0")
WebBrowser1.Navigate(fileurl)
its using webbrowser then to access pdf and disable panel like it should do in AxAcroPDF1

thanks 2 more questions:
It will work with the "OpenFileDialog1.FileName"
"U:\PDFProject\File\Manual abc.pdf"

but not with my filelocation on a hidden share:
"\\servername\pdftemp$\User name\Office Manual abc.pdf"

The difference must be in the fileurl dimension:

 '{file:///U:/PDFProject/File/Manual abc.pdf%23toolbar=0&navpanes=0}

 '{file://server/pdftemp$/User Name/Manual abc.pdf%23toolbar=0&navpanes=0}

whats the problem with the url? could it be that the "\\" "//" at the beginning makes some troubles?

next question is how to deny selecting text inside the webBrowser1 component?
I'm able to copy paste the text.

Thanks
