    Adding pdf.ocx in VB6?

    I have a strange problem.
    I wish to browse a pdf-file from VB6, so I have created a form with a picturebox and the code below:

    VB Code:
    1. Form7.Pdf1.src = "http://www.logstor.com/productcatalogue/uk/uk_4_5.pdf"

    And this has been working, but now I receive this error when making the project file:

    Code:
    Compile Error. Method or data member not found.
    What is going on?????

    But I have used this code in 3 years without any problems, but since I've installed Acrobat Reader 7.0 everything is going wrong

    hpl,

    Then pdf1 is not a VB6 PictureBox. It must be a Acrobat PictureBox and you must add in the Acrobat component or reference if any.

    I found the pdf.ocx, or at least a trial version of it, anyways.
    It cost $50 otherwise.

    hpl,

    Doesn't the pdf viewer get installed when you install Acrobat? Just add the component to your project.

    You can download pdf.ocx from www.download.com

    How do I add a Acrobat Picturebox, and where do I add the Acrobat component/object?

    hpl,

    In VB6, go to Project->Components then select the component. Then you can add it to your form.
