If you put a active-X control on your page, it only puts a reference to that control. The browser then checks the registry for wich control to use.

If people do not have the control installed (drag the .OCX file on regsrv32.exe in your windows\system directory (or search it on your HD or internet)) the browser will not find it.

Due to security reason you cannot automaticly let the browser download and install the control (that would be a bit pushy if it concerns .OCX programs, cause I could make one wich formats the harddrive or stuff like that).

So you'll have to provide (if you're allowed to by copyrights of the control) the .OCX file and perhaps the regsrv32.exe program to make it work. That's why enhanchements with standard controls (like the treeview) are better and more common.

Hopefully I correctly understand the question, cause I never use active X outside VB and VC.

Grtx,
