Can't Control Window Dimensions And Position Of A Word Document Opened From A Form
Nov 23, 2010
I am writting a program that aims at filling up bookmarks of a template with data retrieved from a sql server db. The form opens a Word document but I can't control the position and dimensions of the word document. It seems that I can't manage to overwrite MS Word default settings for position and dimensions. I want to be able to display the word document close to the form.Here is the code that I have tried and doesn't work:
I have been able to open a word document via a button click which holds some text programatically.But what i want to know is" Is it possible for me to open the said word document within a windows form so that it will be within the application itself but not somewhere else.i have been using this code show the word document but i want it within the form like having a picture in a picture box on a form. not somewhere outside the application.

We are opening a Word document from our Visual Basic 2010 application using the Word object. When we run our application under Windows Server 2008 the document name is truncated in the main window title for the document. This is not the case when we run our application under Windows XP. Is there a way to prevent this truncation under Windows Server 2008?Mary Leathem
I want to drag-and-drop a Word Document 2003/2007 control in my form by .NET Framework. Like we do for PDF in the following screenshot. If you see the highlighted text, it is Adobe PDF Reader. I can show the PDF documents in this control in my form.
I developed a VB Winforms application in VS2010 Pro on my Win7 x64 desktop computer. I also have VS2010 loaded on my Win7 x64 laptop and when I open the same solution the application's form controls are shifted out of alignment and appear slightly stretched horizontally. The VS IDE settings are identical on both computers. Any idea why the solution looks perfect in the IDE when on my desktop, but when opened in the IDE on my laptop, all the controls shift out of alignment horizontally
I am developing an application which has a WebBrowser control, and it navigates to a tal.ki forum. Now tal.ki allows users to sign in using existing accounts in google or facebook, and opens a new window for the same.Now when i click log in, a new IE window opens up, which asks me to log in, i provide the information, the window closes, but the user is not logged into the forum.I have heard that session plays some part here, but i don't know anything i can do for this. I tried WebKitBrowser but that not even opens a window to log in.

I am having form called Test1 which contains button( Button1). When I press the button the message box is getting displaying,but at the same time I am accessing the Form Test1. It should not be the case, because before closing the message box the control should not allow to focus the Test1. But in my case the control is allowing to focus the Test1(form) before closing the message box.
If myReader.Read() Then MsgBox("Matched record exist.", MsgBoxStyle.Information, "Data Tool") Else
I have a Word document in a WebBrowser. I modify the doc and save it with another name in another path. Finally I close my form and put my doc as nothing. My problem is that a dialog box appears sugesting me saving the changes (the changes done in the initial path) but i have already saved my document so I always want to select "No", how can I avoid this dialog box? Or if it isn't possible, how can I automatize this action?
The application I support is creating an amalgamted Word document by copying couple of Word documents in one document right after each other. The problem is the format of the some of the fields of the document that gets appended is changed in amalgamated document while the amalgamated document is the copy of AppendDocument (imagine if we have one document to copy in the amalgamated document)
In vb6, we have a windows (kind of layout of the screen), that allows us to manually position a form, by simply moving it with the mouse to the desired position.Don't we have same feature in .net ? am not finding where I can show this Window in visual studio 2008
ow can open word document inside the "Microsoft Web Browser" control using vb.net.Word document open inside the "microsoft web browser" control by using VS 2008,vb.net, office 2003 and Win Xp. but it is not open inside the "microsoft web browser" control by using VS2008,vb.net office 2007 and Win 7.
I am using webbrwoser control to open Word document for editing on winform using vb.net. (vs 2005). Now once user edit the word document, I want to forcefully save that edited document to my document when user directly close win form or user will try to EXIT. Unfortunately, word doc which open on webbrowser control if it is edited and when winfrom is being closed it won't ask us to save where as independent word document aske to save changes. I tried to call method "ShowSaveasDialog()" of webbrowser control on winform close event it did not fire up.
I am trying to get vb.net 2008 to display a Word document within a form. (I have an emailer where the user selects a Word document to mail-merge from a list and I need to be able to display the document so they can be sure it is the right one). At the moment I am trying to use the web browser control but this is giving me the following problems....
1. How to prevent the file download (open/save/cancel) dialog from displaying. 2. In Office 2007 it is opening the document in a separate instance of MS Word.
I have a VB.NET MDI WinForms app. My users have been complaining about form creep (as they call it), this is where each time you open a specific form within the main MDI window it opens slightly below and to the right of the location it loaded previously - i.e. it starts in the top left of the window and works its way down to the bottom right.I have to agree with them that this is extremely irritating, is there any way to prevent this?
The code to load the forms is:
frmPurchaseInvoiceSelect.Show() frmPurchaseInvoiceSelect.MdiParent = Me
I can address this somewhat by setting the forms start-up positions to 'Manual' but then they just open directly on top of each other in the top left of the screen.
i have found the Hwnd for a window and i now wish to get information about this window, the location on the screen of the window and its width and height. Problem is the values i get are not anything near right.
vb.Net <DllImport("User32.dll")> _ Private Shared Function GetWindowRect(ByVal hWnd As IntPtr, ByRef lpRect As Rect) As Boolean
this returns 0 for height and width and the remaining figures are nearly 0 (1.68E-311) what am i missing and how can i get this information?
I'm making a photo editor and the size of the image depends on the size of the window, like the Zoom mode in the BackgroundImageLayout property of a form. It works sometimes: when resized only a small amount, it does nothing, but when the image is resized more than that, it jumps to the right position.
vb.net Private Function GetImageRect() As Rectangle Dim r As New Rectangle() If Me.ClientSize.Width > Me.ClientSize.Height Then
We have an interactive windows based application written in VB .Net 2010. It uses Word Object to display documents in MS Word. We have a form with a button. When the button is clicked we open the Word document and maximize the Word Windowstate. When we have the Visual Studio Tool running, the Word Document is maximized and has focus, even if we are running the exe from the bin folder outside of the tool. However, if Visual Studio is not running and we run the exe, focus remains on the original form window and the document stays in the task bar.
I have been trying to figure out how to read paragraph content which exists a heading. The heading itself is part of the table of contents. The heading will have a particular style (say Heading 1). For example: "Introduction" is a entry in Table of content with style Heading 1. I want to read content under heading "Introduction" but not any more content (i.e not content under sub headings of Introduction) I have been trying to do this using styles/style, TableofContent, Paragraphs/Paragraph,Range. Still cannot come up with a effective solution. I am working in VB.NET in VS 2010. I am using the word 2007 object model (office 2007 interop) as [URL]
I have a VB.net application that gets data off our server with ODBC and populates and saves a Word Document. When I try to deploy it to another computer it will get the data just fine and populate the first document, but it will crash before saving it. I've installed the .net framework 4.0, Microsoft Data Access Components, and the Microsoft ODBC .net data Provider. The error code is 0xC0000005, which is from what I can see is called an "Access Violation Exception." It works fine on my computer.
I have document, with numerous pages, that will populate at key locations using a UserForm and bookmarks. One of the pages in the document may need to be repeated. In other words, one of the pages may need to be populated more than once (and inserted successively in the document).
The troublesome page has bookmarks that will need to be repopulated with different information for every new instance within that same document.
I am considering making a table with the verbage in the "Troublesome Document" located in a Table. When I need to repopulate a new instance of that page, I think I should:
1. populate the document 2. copy and paste the wording in a new page 3. insert the new page (without bookmarks yet maintaining formatting) before the "Trouble Document" 4. repeat steps 1-3 for every necessary instance 5. delete the "Trouble Document" with the Table
I'm trying to read a word document for the purpose of obtaining a word count, I realise Word has built in functionality for presenting a word count but I want to write a little app that will omit certain parts of the document from the word count.
So far I have tried this code to open the document but I am getting an error 'Word.Document cannot be found' and 'Microsoft.Office.Interop cannot be found'. I have added a reference to the Microsoft Office 12.0 Object Library under the COM tab. I have Office 2007 installed and I'm using VB2005.
Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop Dim appWord As New Microsoft.Office.Core.Application Dim docWord As New Word.Document docWord = appWord.Documents.Open("c: est.doc")
I'm doing a small tool that basically wipes the document properties of each .*doc file in a specified folder. The code is working, however, if the document is already opened, I'm presented with a text box asking if I want to open a read only copy etc. I want the code to abort if that happens and rather write it down in a log file or something. And just move on to the next file. How can I do this? I'm talking about editing thousands of documents.
This is the code I have so far:
Imports Office = Microsoft.Office.Core Imports Word = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word Imports System.IO
I have a form that I want to have a control box so you can close it at any time but I don't want it to be movable from its origainal position. It opens maximized and I want it to stay maximized. I've tried all the different FromBorderStyle options in properties and I've tried all the SizeGripStyle properties though I can't say I've tried all the combinations possible between those two but whatever I've tried I can always click on the border at the top and then the form breaks free from its starting position and when it does the vertical scroll bar disappears.
How can I have this form stay in place with the vertical scroll bar and the control box and not break free from its starting position if someone clicks on the border at the top? If I try FromBorderStyle None then I don't have control box to close it. I was looking at the form events list and I noticed when I break the form free by clicking on the border that that is a ClientSizeChanged event.
