Create Method

Creates a new document.


*expression   * Required. An expression that returns a Document object.

FileOpen    Optional String. The path and filename of the optional document file that is to be loaded into the new document.


The FileOpen argument accepts an .MDI or a .TIF file. If you do not supply the path, the Create method looks for the source file in the current folder. You can also create a new document without loading a source file, and add images to the new document from other open documents.


The following example creates a new document from an existing .TIF file and saves the new document as an .MDI file.

Sub TestCreate()

  Dim miDoc As MODI.Document
  Set miDoc = New MODI.Document
  miDoc.Create "C:\document1.tif"
  miDoc.SaveAs "C:\document1.mdi", miFILE_FORMAT_MDI
  Set miDoc = Nothing

End Sub
