Topic: Will CropPages work from a vbs script?
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 80453

Hi, I'm trying to code a script in VBS to automatically crop a file, with no succes. The script don't throw any error but the page don't get cropped.

Could someone be so kind to take a look to the code and tell if I'm doing something wrong?

Thank in advance,

VBS Code begins->

Public Const PDSaveIncremental = &H0 ' write changes only
Public Const PDSaveFull = &H1 ' write entire file
Public Const PDSaveCopy = &H2 ' write copy w'o affecting current state
Public Const PDSaveLinearized = &H4 ' writes the file linearized for
' page-served remote (net) access.
Public Const PDSaveBinaryOK = &H10 ' /* OK to store binary in file */
Public Const PDSaveCollectGarbage = &H20 ' perform garbage collection on unreferenced objects ''

Dim PDDoc, FileIn, FileOut, Rect

Set PDDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")

FileIn = "d:\mis documentos\cas.pdf"
FileOut = "d:\mis documentos\cas-1.pdf"

Set Rect = CreateObject("AcroExch.Rect")

Rect.Top = 1062
Rect.Bottom = 90
Rect.Left = 0
Rect.Right = 821

PDDoc.Open FileIn
PDDoc.CropPages 0, 1, 0, Rect
PDDoc.Save PDSaveFull, FileOut

Set PDDoc = nothing
Set Rect = nothing

<- VBS Code ends
