Topic: getPageBox and CopyToClipboard

I have some VB code I wrote that works perfectly to crop a PDF's BBox (Basically reproducing Ctrl-T and remove white margins):
vArray = jso.getPageBox("BBox", iPage)
With acroRect
.Left = vArray(0)
.Top = vArray(1)
.bottom = vArray(3)
.Right = vArray(2)
End With

acroPDDoc.CropPages iPage, iPage + 1, 0, acroRect

Instead of actually cropping the page, I would like to Copy the region to the clipboard. But for some reason the following code does not work:

Set acroPDPage = acroPDDoc.AcquirePage(jso.pageNum)
Clipboard.Clear
acroPDPage.CopyToClipboard acroRect, 0, 0, 100

Any ideas what I am doing wrong? It seems like the coordinate system is totally different. Thanks in advance!
