[REBOL] RebolView/DLL experiments

From: bry::itnisk::com at: 8-Mar-2004 14:09

So in my continuing experiments with the RebolView/DLL I found the following: RebolView/DLL will run in ActiveDesktop, it will run in Internet Explorer, if a plugin running in IE crashes no other plugin will run in IE until IE is shutdown, but ActiveDesktop running plugins will run. RebolView/DLL will run in an explorer bar, I am however having trouble thinking of any reasonable use for an explorer bar rebol script as it isn't possible to pass context from the browser main window to the plugin (although I was thinking it would be possible to have a simple text db that the the bar passed info to via javascript, that the referenced rebol script could access and see what to do) here's an stupid scripting trick for ya: running a rebol script in an explorer bar that consists of browse url will open a new instance of IE with the explorer bar open, in which case the script gets called again and opens a new instance of IE with the explorer bar open, and so on and so on :) A plugin in a webview .htt file crashes, this by the way confirms again my earlier post as to how the crash of a RebolView/DLL only effects instances of the plugin running on the same thread, as when a webview crashes it also crashes ActiveDesktop, but instances of IE can still run the plugin with no problem. As it turns out the error in a webview hosting of plugin seems basically to be the security settings, given the following error message: ** Access Error: Cannot open /C/projects/tests/files2 r ** Near: do/args script system/script/args quit
anyway, i think what I would like most for the RebolView/DLL would be an extra optional parameter, that would be accessible from the script as its arguments, in that way there could be at least one way communication from the brower to the plugin.
