Topic: Opening and saving a web page as PDF from VB

I need to grab a webpage and save it as a PDF from a VB code, keeping the formatting, the same way it's done when we choose "File"/"Open Web Page" on Acrobat 5. Is that possible?

If I do it on the standard way (as shown on the code below) the CSS formatting is lost.



Dim AcroApp As Acrobat.CAcroApp
Dim AVDoc As Acrobat.CAcroAVDoc
Dim a As Acrobat.CAcroPDDoc

Dim PDDOC, HTMLFilename, HTMLFile
Dim PDFFile As String

PDFFile = "c:\main.pdf"
HTMLFilename = ""
HTMLFile = "h:\statkart\main.htm"

'Start the ole to Acrobat
Set AcroApp = CreateObject("")
Set AVDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.AVDoc")

'Open the HTML file.
'First arg is the file to open, second is title of the file.

Set PDDOC = Nothing
Set AVDoc = Nothing

While PDDOC Is Nothing
    Set AVDoc = AcroApp.GetActiveDoc
    Set PDDOC = AVDoc.GetPDDoc

PDDOC.Save &H1, PDFFile
AVDoc.Close True
