Can I open a pdf file in Acrobat reader and go to a page using vb.net

P: n/a
Hi,

I have a database that contains the name of PDF file and page numbers for
articles.

Is it possible using my vb.net winform application, open up the pdf and then
move to the relevant page within the pdf?

Thanks

If it makes it easier, I can open the PDF via the browser as the PDF could
be hosted on a web site...

Hi,

After doing a more 'intellegent hunt' for a solution, I found a very simple
solution...

Thanks

For me the easist way was to open the pdf via the browser, and append the
page number which the pdf reader then uses to do the page move itself

Dim Proc As New System.Diagnostics.Process
Proc.StartInfo.FileName =
"http://www.websitename.net/pdfFilename.pdf#page=" & intPageNumber
Proc.Start()

I don't know whether anyone from Microsoft regularly reads the Visual Basic
groups but if they do then I am very surprised that they permit one of their
own MVPs to engage in such outrageous long term trolling activities in one
of their own public newsgroups, such as the activity that the person who
purports to be Bill McCarthy has engaged in on the
microsoft.public.vb.general.discussion group for many months. If this man
belongs to you:

https://mvp.support.microsoft.com/pr...9-25680609CCB8

.. . . then perhaps you might like to look at his activity in that group.
Here for example is one of his very latest offerings:

Yeh, still a way to go. I think given the warm reaction today,
and given some folks have learning difficulties around here
(obviously why they are still *stuck* in VB6 *only*), might
just have to ramp things up a notch or two, and make it more
toasty :D
