Hi,

I want to call ipad application from javascript. I give the Window.Location = strpath(for eg: E:/cap/). This path have objective C header file and i am using Asp.Net application. I know that when call another application from client side, we need to create ActiveX objects. But i dont know how to create for this scenario. Is it possible to call the native code of another application from javascript. Please help me. I am wasting one day for this one.But still i didnt get any solution.

Hope waiting for your's reply.

Thanks
Guvera

Javascript is completely blocked from accessing the host computer to protect the client computer and ActiveX objects are only available on Windows.

Instead of call aspx page i created Html page and call the html page from native code. It is working fine now from the ipad end.

If you still need this, you can do it with a custom url scheme:
