ActiveX Events caught in HTML document

I have created an ActiveX control for embedding in a HTML document using VC++.

The control is working well. My problem is that I wish to generate an event in the control which is caught by the browser/html page and activates a VBScript or Javascript function defined within that page.

Using the VC++ class wizard, i have created a custom event which is fired  by the control under certain circumstances.

How can i map this event to a VBScript of Javascript function?

I have tried using a standard ActiveX event (eg FireClick) and catching it with an <OBJECT> tag "onClick" property, but this does not seem to work.

Alternatively, is there a C++ function/method available to my ActiveX control which enables me to re-direct the browser to another URL (ala AppletContext functions in java).

please help!
many thanks,
Brendan.

You don't do it with the <OBJECT> statement, you do it like this:

<html>

<head>
<title>Test</title>
</head>
<object ID="Pinger" CLASSID="CLSID:DC458CF3-3ED8-11D2-84CE-0020AFEDCD49">
</object>

<body>

<p>Hello <BUTTON ID="test">Click me</BUTTON>

<script LANGUAGE="vbscript" FOR="test" EVENT="onclick">
<!--
      call window.alert("Trying to ping")
      Pinger.Ping
-->
</script>

<script
LANGUAGE="VBScript" FOR="pinger" EVENT="pong">
call window.alert(pong)
</script>

</p>

</body>
</html>

The PING object has an event called PONG. This web page catches the event using VBSCRIPT, but you can also use JSCRIPT.
