Copying text from a PDF to Groupbox

Copying text from a PDF to Groupbox

Copying text from a PDF to Groupbox

Dear all

I am writing a code using Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition. I am using many Groupboxes for several Forms. I have to copy text from a pdf to the Groupbox. The problem I am facing is that the text has many lines and when I copy them, the Groupbox gets only the first line. Is there any other VB version that this issue has been solved. Could anyone give me a tip here so solve that? I appreciate any help.

Best Regards

RE: Copying text from a PDF to Groupbox

I'm a little confused as to why you are using a GroupBox - surely a TextBox would be better suited for the task?

Add a TextBox to your Form and set its MultiLine property to True, and then resize it as appropriate.
