Topic: Zoom In / Zoom out using OLE Automation
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 59984

I have a C++ application which controls Acrobat via OLE automation and need to be able to zoom in and out of a PDF document. Acrobat has a zoom toolbar with a zoom in and zoom out fly-out on the zoom tool but i need to be able to control this using my own toolbar/menu instead. Calling app.SetActiveTool("ZoomIn") or app.SetActiveTool("ZoomOut") or app.SetActiveTool("Zoom") gives me the zoom in tool, but never the zoom out tool (unless i hold down the Control key). Does anyone know if it is possible to set zoom out as my active tool?
I also have a similar problem with trying to set the active tool to be the Select Text tool and get SelectRect instead. OLE automation of Acrobat seems to be lacking the functionality required.
I hope someone can help.
