Hello!
How to create a form with . pdf and . doc reader? like a library. . .
I want to open the . pdf and . doc files on the form.
I work on Visual Studio C++ (CLR).

Use the fileopen dialog and use the file type displayed filter to show the needed file types only

Not on form but a dialog window just like when you click File Open from application like Notepad.

Search for OLE on MSDN (Object Linking and Embedding). You might already have the Acrobat plugin installed - it's the "feature" that means whenever you click a PDF online, you get the PDF displayed in the browser (so you get the PDF window with the browser's menu - I've never been able to see the point of that, but apparently people wet themselves about it so it must be good), so you also need to find a similar plugin for DOC files (by which do you mean Microsoft Word? It's not the only word processor to use the DOC extension).

Foxit Reader is good software for PDF reader but if you want PDF writer or editor then code origami is the best software.
