Blank box displaying on top of ole control

Post by markmazza »

I just started using my purchased version of PDF Creator in PB 9. I did not experience this problem with the demo version.

When my window opens (that contains the ole control) it displays with what appears to be a white box that overlays the entire control. If I click just off of it, the underlying control shows the PDF correctly and the white box dissappears. The PDFCReactiveX control is working as expected except for this box appearing?

How can I stop this white box from displaying?

I've registered PDF Suite correctly, I see that the install.ini has all the correct Licensee and license #, and my coding is quite simple..,"")
my_ole_control.Object.FitToParent = True

Any suggestions?

I used to use the PDF Creator in Powerbuilder and I never get a white box over the control when running the application.

I would suggest that when loading your datawindow containing the PDF Creator control, you call .SetLicenseKey() and .Refresh() methods before opening a new pdf file using the ole.

Hope this helps.
