Topic: Acrobat API Utilization in Creating ActiveX Controls for Visual Basic
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 51263

I currently develop applications utilizing Visual Basic as well as C++ to= be
incorporated into business/legal document flows. I recently have needed t=o
expand my toolkit and need to develop ActiveX components in C++ utilizing= the
Acrobat API (I need the ActiveX components so they can be utilized with V=isual
Basic which is our shop standard). My problem is that I have hit a wall t=rying
to figure out which header files I need to
incorporate and include from the Acrobat SDK. Can anyone offer me any
suggestions on how to incorporate these files to produce my components. I= just
need to grab PDDoc and PDBookmark objects. I develop solutions based on t=he
client having a full version of Acrobat 4.05 installed on their machine. =I'd
be more than willing to lend some information on automating Photoshop or
Framemaker in return or will make available the ActiveX compents I create=. I'd
really appreciate the help.
