Running Visio controls in Internet Explorer 6

Running Visio controls in Internet Explorer 6

Running Visio controls in Internet Explorer 6

I've just started messing around in earnest with Visio today, so pardon the noobishness. I'm a programmer by trade, but have no VB experience.

I've got a Visio document in which I placed elements on different layers. With some nice cut-n-paste coding from Google, I added some controls that hide and show various layers.

This works fine from within Visio. When I drop the .vsd file on Internet Explorer, however, the file always comes up in Design Mode. I suspect that this is something designed to prevent malicious macros from running.

After some Googling, I did find how how to generate a self-signed cert and sign my VB project with it. Now, when I open the file in Visio, it works perfect--the file opens in Design Mode. When I drop the *.vsd on Internet Explorer, IE definitely notices the file is self signed... I get prompted as to whether I want to enable macros in the document, but the file still comes up in Design Mode (and there's no way to flip it to Run Mode that I can tell).

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
