Topic: Print PDF silently (via Print method exposed by JSObject)

Cheers!

I'm having an issue with being able to print a pdf document without displaying it (from a VB 6 app). When the print method gets executed, i get an error message saying "Object doesn't support this property or method". I've looked at the SDK docs (JSScript Ref & IAC) and I feel everything is coded properly, but no dice... Any ideas will be appreciated.

Private Sub PDFPrint(FName as String)

Dim srcDoc As Acrobat.CAcroPDDoc
Dim jsObject As Object
Dim pp As Object
Dim retval As Long

On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

' open pdf file
Set srcDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")

retval = srcDoc.Open(FName)

If retval <> -1 Then
Err.Description = "Failed to open document = " + FName

Err.Source = "Adobe Acrobat 6.0"
Err.Number = 0
GoTo ErrorHandler
End If

'get JS Interface to document
Set jsObject = srcDoc.GetJSObject

'save pdf as post script file
jsObject.SaveAs Replace(FName, ".pdf", ".ps"), "com.adobe.acrobat.ps"

'get printParms and set properties
Set pp = jsObject.getPrintParams
pp.FileName = Replace(jsObject.Path, ".pdf", ".ps")
pp.interactive = pp.Constants.interactionLevel.silent

'print post script document
jsObject.Print pp

'close PDDoc
srcDoc.Close

Set pp = Nothing
Set jsObject = Nothing
Set srcDoc = Nothing

Exit Sub

ErrorHandler:

Set pp = Nothing
Set jsObject = Nothing
Set srcDoc = Nothing

'log error code here

End Sub
