Topic: Using Acrobat control for ActiveX in VC++ application
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 121728

Hello Friends,
I am developing an app in VC++ to display PDF documents.
I want these PDF documents to be displayed in my application window.
I have added Acrobat control for ActiveX in my app.
To test i tried to drag the control on a dialog box expecting to load a PDF file within that control area on the dialog box.
i declared a variable m_pdf of class CPdf
Then i try to load the file
When i run the application , a seperate acrobat reader window is opened which was unexpected :( and eventually it doesnt even open the test.pdf file in that window. When i close the window, i get an error message - "could not find acrobat external window handler" and nothing loads within the control area on my dialog box.
Please can anybody tell me what am i missing and how do i go about it ?
Thankyou !

OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
