After using the <object id="Alarm" classid="clsid:6262D3A0-531B-11CF-91F6-C2863C385E30" width="923" height="461"> to create an object, I want to use methods of the object to set values in the object.  Can this be done?  If so how?

I've tried the following code to no prevail.

<object id="Alarm" classid="clsid:6262D3A0-531B-11CF-91F6-C2863C385E30" width="923"
height="461">
</object>
<%
    Alarm.Cols = 10
%>
Get the following error
Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01a8'

Object required: 'Alarm'

I am afraid you try to mix server side script (ASP) with client side objects. You can't. Client side scripts/objects run in the browser on the client's machine, server side scripts/object run on the webserver machine.

If you want to access client-side ActiveX control methods, you'll have to use client side script:

<script language="VBScript>
code for client

<script>

I was afraid of this.  Could you give a little code snipit which shows the use of an object with client-scripting where methods from the object are being used?

<object id="Alarm" classid="clsid:6262D3A0-531B-11CF-91F6-C2863C385E30" width="923" height="461">
</object>

<script language="VBScript>
Alarm.Cols = 10
<script>

Of course it depends on the object with methods and properties you can access with scripting. Some are read-only.

But with this code you won't get the error 'Object required'.
