Topic: Using Get/Set Frame in VB

Hi,

Please excuse any foolishness here, but I'm brand new to this PDF developing, and am struggling a bit with ADOBE's documentation.

My problem is, I'm trying to open a PDF document in a form using VB. I have created the form and then opened the PDF into it using the OpenInWindowEx method. So far so good, the document displayed as hoped for. However, if I then resize the window the PDF control stays the same size.
So I tried to do somthing like:
Private Sub WindowSizeChanged()
Dim acrobatRec As Acrobat.CAcroRect

acrobatRec = acrobatDoc.GetFrame()
acrobatRec.Top = Me.Top
acrobatRec.bottom = Me.Bottom
acrobatRec.Left = Me.Left
acrobatRec.right = Me.Right
acrobatDoc.SetFrame(acrobatRec)
End If
End Sub

This resizes the PDF control OK, but gets it completely wrong!

I have since found that if I call the following (without even resizing the window)

Dim acrobatRec As Acrobat.CAcroRect
acrobatRec = acrobatDoc.GetFrame()
acrobatDoc.SetFrame(acrobatRec)

The PDF controls changes shape and no longer fits in the window.

Anyone got any ideas, PLEASE!

Thanks in advance,

ChrisM
