Some third party languages I have seen have limited OCX support, such as Rapid-Q and Envelop. They did a lousy job with it, but it's there (I wouldn't consider using these languages, because of various issues).

I think it would be GREAT if VDS had ocx support (w/o having to custom tailor the ocx files to be VDS specific, otherwise just add them to the runtime).

Especially considering I know how to make OCX files in VB, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to make a VB DLL compatible in VDS, not only that I'm not good at making DLL's to where I am very good with OCX.

Alternatively, if one of is clever enough there may be a way to use VDSELM.DLL to control a web browser with a embedded ocx in HTML....getting the return value would be difficult.

Im currently testing a DLL that im doing, that mainly is a Webbrowser element but with some little features such as:

- Blocking of drag n drop of files on the webbrowser control
- No right click on the web browser control
- And the basic browser functionnalities
- And other nice little tweaks for IE Browsers.

Anyway, I started doing this DLL for me initilally but Ill release it to the VDS community as shareware. My idea was to run ActiveX controls within that webbrowser control without worrying that the user drops a file on the webbrowser control or right clicks on it like its possible with VDSELM.

I will look if theres a way to receive info from the webbrowser/ActiveX control...

I have done some things in the past with VDSELM and ActiveX Control. The VDS app would create the HTML code according to the users input and then I would send it to the Browser control. Javascript functions where sent to the control via VDS, like javascript:open for example.. Anyway Ill have an example with my future DLL . I need to add the tweaks features first.

Me too Im in favor of using ActiveX control within VDS! Wink

Hi All,
ActiveX support is now a reality for VDS Wink Take a look at my website for demos using GadgetX.dll

Have Fun Wink
