Topic: Create, View, & Print PDF from VB

I've been searching for a component that will allow me to create a PDF from scratch, view the newly created PDF, and also have the capability to print it. It seems as though external integration with Acrobat won't work because I want the view capability to be hosted inside my VB Form. I also want relatively tight integration so I can intelligently report status and error information to my users.

I've done Google searches, and checked out and, but have been unable to find a component to do all of this. The best I've been able to find is combining 2-3 components from different vendors to get the job done. Does anyone out there know of a more elegant way to get this done? FYI: This is a VB 6 app, not a VB.NET one.

Thanks in advance for your help!
