I need a control (Active x /com) that provides the powerful viewing capabilities of the Acrobat reader, that is to be able to:

-zoom (in-out-fit)



-keep a stack of the previously displayed "views".


However, I don't want to use the "standard" Acrobat Reader.

I want to create my own user interface.
I NEED INFO ABOUT any possible control / development kit OR MAYBE a developer who can help me provide the above capabilities within my own VB form ... (P.S. Iím committed to buy/pay for this)

In a trial to do that -using the "standard pdf active x component" in a vb form , I was able to do most of them EXCEPT FOR ZOOM WINDOW i.e to zoom in by dragging around a rectangular area in the pdf file.
(this is possible in the standard Acrobat Reader as we all know).

Also, regarding the db connectivitiy , this can be achieved through VB ... but any proposed alternative is more than welcome.

Best Regards
