Well if it's an ActiveXObject it should be
usable from within any OLE container right?
Microsoft Word, PowerPoint Presentations, as
well as Internet Explorer.
This actually simplifies a host of things I
wanted to do to integrate explorer with IE,
I'm hoping that I can build a complete
sample over the weekend.
2. One common usage of a lot of firms is IE
as an interface, using the webbrowser
control. Wrapping the webbrowser control an
application and using it as the interface
for your application, you can define new
functions in language X that your interface
can call, thus you can use html's layout
capabilities, all other capabilities of the
browser to host activeX objects such as this
one, and call external arguments. The app
can also access the html dom and change
things, so for example the wrapping
application could access a tag, such as the
object tag, and change what .r file was
being called by that tag.
