I've been searching for the following...
A plug-in for VB that will retrieve the selected text in an open PDF file viewed via Reader 5 or 6.
I have Acrobat 5 & 6 professional and am willing to work with whatever version necessary.
This will be for Windows 98-XP clients.
Preferably, I will open the PDF via an ocx within VB. The user browses the file (a parts catalog), clicks on a part, and that info is transferred to VB. I have tried using a link to run a program, but I am unable to pass a parameter (in this case the part #). The PDF file is created from PageMaker files.
Attached is a sample. Click on the red box around part #83005.
I have found 1 ocx to do this, but am wondering if there are any (cheaper) alternatives. PDF Reader OCX at http://www.pdfwizard.com/eng/product/ocx.asp
Any advice would be most appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
