    Posted: 07 Feb 11 at 6:06PM
I have a weird issue hoping someone can help me with it...

Basically I am trying to automate a .net application reporting functionality.  This is a 3rd party program and I only have access to their DLL's.  They used PDF reDirect to merge a few pdf from a batch report.  What I have to do is in my code since I can only call the print function, I need to be able to hook onto the created pdf redirect merge window.

Is this possible with the pro version?

Just to repeat, I don't have access to any of the source code to generate and send the pdf documents to the merge window...what I need to do after it is created hook into the window (through com?) and rename the file and directory it should go and close the window.

   It's unlikely that they are using the Merge Window. More likely is that they are using the PDF reDirect ActiveX component to do the merge of the PDF files.

   Because the command to merge is sent directly to the ActiveX component, and the command is executed immediately, it is highly unlikely that you will be able to intercept or modify the command.

   The ActiveX component for PDF reDirect Pro is [here].
