Topic: Return text annotations in unicode from VB?
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 66986

I have a great problem when trying to export text annotations from a PDF to fx. an XML document, using Acrobat SDK, from within VB. I can't get the text as unicode...I'm using a Danish W2K and have no problems exporting characters in the latin character set, but when trying to export fx. Cyrillic characters I just get a bunch of crap when viewing the XML document in IE...

Se below example of how I'm getting the text from the annotation:
Set AcroPDAnnot = AcroPDPage.GetAnnot(nAnnotNo)
strContent = AcroPDAnnot.GetContents

How do I get the characters in Unicode, instead of a charcode for each character of each character set? I wan't the output from above "AcroPDAnnot.GetContents" returned in unicode...?

I hope you can help me:)
