Hi,
I've found a dll to handle image files but it is created in c++ and I don't have a great knowledge of that language. Would it be possible to use that in an ASP web page?
I don't know if I should transfer it to an Active X first. Please enlight me on that and on the ways to do so if possible.

the Dll is from http://www.smalleranimals.com/isource.htm  it is really cheap compared to others!
I need a quick answer so I put 250 pts on this one.

Thanks,
Jonthemoon

If you want to use it on a web page, you in fact need to use ActiveX. The page ypu linked above also lists ImgX (http://www.smalleranimals.com/isource.htm#imgx) as an ActiveX wrapper for that DLL, so why not go that way?

jkr,
ImgX could do the trick but I feel limited by licence restrictions.
PaintX looks real nice!! I've tried it from VB and it looks great.

How could I use it to output a picture to a web page?
