Topic: Copy selected text from Acrobat to VB?

I'm trying to get the text that a user has already selected in Acrobat into my VB app.
I've tried several ways to do this and none seem to work:
MenuItemExecute("Copy") -- always returns 0 (false)
Defining a selection (but this requires programmatically creating the selection).
The sample AddDispinterface that comes with the SDK seems a step in the right direction, but I'm not a C++ programmer (although I do have access to Visual C++), so I don't know how to compile it.
Anyone know how I can best do this?
