Hello experts,

I made an ActiveX that cleans the windows clipboard, but i want to know if the browser can execute it (check the browser capabilities about ActiveX).

I have checked in Jscript something like: navigator.cookieEnabled, but nothing about check ActiveX enabled.

Can we help me?

Thanx,

Jmvm

Activex won't be executed like javascript.
It will require permission from user before it is downloaded and executed.

if you need to detect activex compatibility, please see browserhawk at

Hi,

  fozylet states, ActiveX objects require downloading or existence.  Therefore,
you can do something like:

<script>
try {
 x = new ActiveXObject("myObject")
// etc.....
} catch (error) {
  alert('no activeX')
}
</script>
