ActiveX (client side) usage in Web applications
Posted on 2000-05-03
I would like to ask you as web developers (and not only as ASP people).
We can create an ActiveX object at the server side as well as at the client side. However, I am interested only in creating an ActiveX object at client side. For example, in Internet Explorer, I am aware of three (at least) ways to create an ActiveX :
1. HTML <OBJECT> tag
2. my_object = new ActiveXObject(“ServerName.ClassName”) (Jscript)
3. DataSpace = new ActiveXObject("RDS.Dataspace") (JScript,MDAC installed)
my_object = DataSpace.CreateObject(“ServerName.ClassName”)
(option 2 and 3 can be configured as remote, in process etc)
I would like to know, what are the most frequent / common usages of ActiveX object at the client side ?
I would very appreciate, if you can point to URL with such common usages.
Thanks a lot .
