upload files with activex (html) object
Posted on 2004-04-07
I had no idea how to set the exact title, but I hope it is descriptive enough. So I would like to do file upload with an VB ActiveX component inside my homepage. There is already such functionality wich can be done with html forms, but there the user has to find the file by himself. I would like to avoid this and make this activex find the file for the user.
I have done some job already: I have an activex which takes a file from a web server and saves it at a client, then it is opened by this activex so the user can read it and change it. Now, when the user is done with this file I would like to have this activex to ask the user if he wants to upload the file back to server.
I am trying to use Winsock via TCP, but it seems impossible to get connected to the server. The code is quite simple:
WS.RemoteHost = "127.0.0.1"
WS.RemotePort = 80
If WS.State = sckConnected Then
MsgBox "Not connected"
It is here winsock cannot get connected. I have tried many different addresses for remote host, but nothing works. Have anyone any clue why this is not working? Is there possibility for some proxy or other things blocking winsock? I'm sick of this behaviour, so any help is appreciated.
