crisoft,

the <param name...> will pass a value to a public property within the ActiveX control.

In your ActiveX control -
  declare a public Let/Get property

  within the Let property assign the argument value to a modular level variable.

Hope this helps.

crisoft,

If your main concern is how to pass a value into an ActiveX control from HTML then try the following instead -

{activeX name}.{property name}= value

heres an example of HTML that i wrote recently that makes use of activex property and event

<p><object name="AssetCom" ID="usr_AssetTV" classid="clsid:9F871D8A-E9F4-11D3-B4AD-0080C7335CA6"
CODEBASE="AssetTV_001.CAB#version=1,0,0,41"
 width="180" height="382">
</object></p>
<body bgcolor="#D9F0ED"></body>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
AssetCom.SetIP="10.4.170.70/"
Sub AssetCom_SelectedAsset(AssetId)
parent.frames("Main").location.href="dcs.asp?astrpage=Main&astrAssetId=" & Assetid
End Sub
</SCRIPT>

In this example there is a property in the activeX control called SetIP and the value of "10.4.170.70/" is passed in.


In the activex control itself use the following code -

Option Explicit
Private mstrIPAddress As String

Public Property Get SetIP() As String
    SetIP = mstrIPAddress
End Property

Public Property Let SetIP(astrIP As String)
    mstrIPAddress = astrIP
End Property


If this doesnt help can you give me more info about your problem or concerns.

Good Luck
