Default Photopaint VBA from 12 to 9

i am very happy with the assistance in the web site.

finally i can have this script to faciliate my daily work in Photopaint 12.

However, this script will be run at 2 computers. due to some technical arrangement, one of the computers is a window 98 machine. i am afraid photopaint 12 is not fit for installation on 98 (system requirement is window 2000, i will try if it fits for 98 machine).

i have another solution by changing some codes to fit into Photopaint Version 9. i installed Photopaint 9 w/ VBA support. But i am very frustrated with its object mode cos i cannot find out how to open a file at the 1st stage by the following line or similar object model.

not work ---- Application.OpenDocument (sourcefolder & "\" & strFile)

********** version 12 code ***************
Sub crop()

Dim strFile As String, newFile As String
Dim sourcefolder As String, destinfolder As String
Dim mydate As Date
Dim mydate1 As String
Dim fso

sourcefolder = "C:\temp"
destinfolder = "c:\folder"
strFile = Dir(sourcefolder & "\*.JPG")
mydate = FormatDateTime(Date, vbGeneralDate)
mydate1 = Replace(mydate, "/", "")
Set fso = CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")

Do While strFile <> ""
Application.OpenDocument (sourcefolder & "\" & strFile)
ActiveDocument.crop 190, 80, 270, 330
ActiveWindow.WindowState = cdrWindowMaximized
newFile = InputBox("please input the number" & vbLf & vbLf & vbLf & strFile)
If FileExists(destinfolder & "\s" & newFile & ".jpg") Then
MsgBox newFile & " exists! The old file will be marked with a postfix date"
Set f1 = fso.getfile(destinfolder & "\s" & newFile & ".jpg")
f1.Move (destinfolder & "\s" & newFile & "-" & mydate1 & ".jpg")
End If
ActiveDocument.SaveAs(destinfolder & "\s" & newFile & ".jpg", cdrJPEG).Finish
strFile = Dir()

End Sub

Function FileExists(strFile As String) As Boolean
On Error Resume Next
Call GetAttr(strFile)
FileExists = (Err.Number = 0)
End Function

Well, PP9's object model was largely redesigned for PhotoPaint 10. It used to be pretty inflexible and resembled CorelScript commands, rather than a true hierarchical object model.

In PP10 this was changed and the object model was recreated from the ground up. As a result, PP10+ macros are pretty much incompatible with that of PP9. Even something as simple as OpenDocument command in PP9 was called OpenDoc...

I tried to create a sample macro in PP9 which would open a file, crop it and saves under another file but for whatever reason SaveAs method keeps saving the document to the same file and disregards the file name I'm specifying. So here is solution #1 I came up with - just rename the original file before saving:

Sub Test()
    Dim doc As Document
    Set doc = Application.OpenDoc("C:\Temp\Test.cpt", 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1)
    doc.ImageCrop 190, 80, 270, 330
    Name "C:\Temp\Test.cpt" As "C:\Temp\Test_old.cpt"
End Sub
Or you can use old CorelScript command to save the file:

Sub Test2()
    Dim doc As Document
    Set doc = Application.OpenDoc("C:\Temp\Test.cpt", 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1)
    doc.ImageCrop 190, 80, 270, 330
    CorelScript.FileSave "C:\Temp\Out.cpt", 1808, 0
End Sub
