How To Capture ActiveX Exe Event In Javascript?

Jul 19, 2006

I know this question has been asked a million times but I still can't
get an event from an embedded ActiveX Exe to be caught in javascript.
I am able to access all the properties and methods of the ActiveX Exe,
I just can't seem to catch the event.

I've declared my object as follows:

<OBJECT
ID = "Test3"
CODEBASE = "http://www.amys-attic.com/Test3.exe"
CLASSID = "CLSID:2ACAEF35-445C-4717-8ACB-A3423E8D64EB"
style="display:none;">
</OBJECT>

My javascript event handler is as follows:

<script language="javascript" for="Test3"
event="PipeEvent(bIsPresent)">
alert("Pipe Detect");
</script>

The event handler never fires. I debugged the ActiveX Exe and verified
that the event is indeed being raised. I am able to catch the event in a VB6 test container project as well. Any ideas?

JavaScript Being Detected As ActiveX??

Mar 9, 2007

I built a form that utilizes arrays for storing data, prototype objects stored in arrays, and DOM using getElementByID and getElementByName. Now, in XP SP2 with the security center turned on, I get alerted by IE6/7 that there is an ActiveX script on the page and it asks to be allowed.

I don't want users IE to see this ActiveX warning. First, the users going to be using this form are not exactly tech savvy enough to know to allow it. Second, I had no idea JavaScript was related to ActiveX--which begs the question, what sort of things cause JavaScript to be flagged as ActiveX?

How To Read Dynamically Generated XML With Javascript And ActiveX XMLHTTP Object?

Jul 23, 2005

Ive been banging my head on the wall for hours with this one, hopefully
someone will know what Im doing wrong here :

The Goal:

I have an xml file that is generated on the fly via JSP which I want to
load into a Microsoft.XMLHTTP ActiveX object and manipulate via
javascript on the client side. Data is retreived from the server at the
request of the javascript without having to reload the page.

The Problem:

For the JSP to dynamically output xml, the file must have the extension
JSP, which is set to the mime type of dynamo-internal/html on the
server side (as we are using ATG Dynamo). But the javascript on the
client side will not retrieve anything unless the file extension is
..xml (or the mime type is recognized as text/xml). So the only way I
can get it to work is to change the extension to .xml, which then of
course amkes it so that the server will not process any of the JSP
code.

Ive tried to override the mime type within the javascript, using the
setRequestHeader method after opening the file, but no luck. A call to
alert the value of req.responseXML.xml after the send() turns up empty.
Ive only gotten it to work if I use a static xml file in palce of the
jsp. Sample of the javascript code is below:

if (window.XMLHttpRequest) {
// branch for native XMLHttpRequest object - THIS WORKS
req = new XMLHttpRequest();
req.overrideMimeType("text/xml");
req.onreadystatechange = processReqChange;
req.open("GET", "models.jsp?cId=300006&mId=TAC24", true);
req.send(null);
alert(req.responseXML.xml); //this gives me the resulting xml file
} else if (window.ActiveXObject) {
// branch for IE/Windows ActiveX version - NOT WORKING
req = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
if (req) {
req.onreadystatechange = processReqChange;
req.open("GET", "models.jsp?cId=300006&mId=TAC24", true);
req.setRequestHeader("Content-Type","text/xml");
req.send();
alert(req.responseXML.xml); //this gives me nothing
}
}

In looking at the following example the Microsoft gives (bottom of
page):

http://support.microsoft.com/defaul...B;EN-US;Q290591

I just dont see what could be going wrong here.


I should note that I successfully got the script to work using the
XMLHttpRequest object and the overrideMimeType() method. This works
with FireFox and I think some Mozilla clients, but not with the all
important IE5, which instead uses the XMLHTTP ActiveX control.=

Image Rollover - Capture Event Action Without Passing To Function

Aug 3, 2011

I'm really just playing around, trying to be as unobtrusive as possible, meaning that I didn't want to just do the standard on mouseover/onmouseout event actions inline in my html. My attempt was relatively close, I just need a way to be able to capture the event action without passing it into a function?

Code:
<script>
var getTabs = function(){
var allTabs = document.getElementsByTagName("div");
for (var i=0;i<allTabs.length;i++){
if (allTabs[i].className == "tabs"){
if (allTabs[i].id == this.id){
if (this.onmouseover != null){
//alert("MouseOVer");
document.getElementById(this.id).style.backgroundColor = "#465D77";
} else if (this.onmouseout != null) {
//alert("MouseOOut");
document.getElementById(this.id).style.backgroundColor = "#1a3757";
}}}}}
onload = function(){
document.getElementById("tabHR").onmouseover = getTabs;
document.getElementById("tabHR").onmouseout = getTabs;
}
</script>

HTML Code:
<!-- Begin Tabs Container -->
<div id="tabsContainer">
<div id="tabGlobal" class="tabsActive">
Home
</div>
<div id="tabHR" class="tabs">
HR Edit
</div>
<div id="tabReports" class="tabs">

<div id="tabData" class="tabs">

Javascript To Capture HTTP Data For Parsing

Feb 18, 2007

I am trying to write a script which will allow me to read the contents of an
HTTP web page into memory, parse the data, and output a calculated value.

The HTTP page is on a web enable appliance - I am reading some data out of a
table for further calculation. I can't modify the web appliance, only read
the text data.

I've written a script on my Windoze PC that successful uses a MSXML2 ActiveX
object to read the contents of a web page into memory using the
xmlhttp.responseText object. The problem is that the ActiveX object is not
available on a lightweight Linux based http server.

I need to write a script that will work with ASP/Javascript on a lightweight
Linux based http server.

Detect If ActiveX Is Disabled?

Aug 1, 2009

I am currently detecting for Shockwave within IE by doing the following:

var isInstalled = false;
if (window.ActiveXObject) {
var control = null;
try {
control = new ActiveXObject('SWCtl.SWCtl');
} catch (e) {

[Code]...

This works as expected and if it fails to detect Shockwave I tell the user to install Shockwave.The problem comes when AcitveX is disabled as it still returns the same message that it's not installed. I would prefer to be able to include an extra step to detect if ActiveX is disabled, in which case I can tell the user to enable it rather than giving them false advice. My only idea would be to detect for an ActiveX Object that every IE user should have installed.

Hangman (DHTML/ActiveX)

Jan 3, 2003

I thought I'd post this and see what you guys think (go easy on me :)). Anyway, my teacher gave the class a project to see if we could make a hangman game with an ActiveX object's draw methods and some good ole' DHTML. I've always wondered why javascript doesn't have any draw methods or graphics objects like Java has.

I suppose SVG will take the place of activeX and Flash... hopefully. Once we had the right object id it was a piece of cake (I found it by the way). Anyway, here's my program. I would've put the code in this post but I have a few includes and graphics that go with it. Best viewed in 1024 x 768 resolution, and IE only (of course).

How To Judge Whether A Browser Supports ActiveX?

Jul 20, 2006

How to judge whether a browser supports ActiveX?

Some browser like Firefox doens't support ActiveX by default, but can
do it with plugin support. Take Firefox for example, it has a whitelist
(activex.js) of allowed ActiveX. So, "new ActiveXObject" may not be a
good idea. The ActiveX control for test is possibly not in the
whitelist.

Is there any better way to do that?

After upgrading to jQuery 1.3.2 users of our application will be prompted with a confirm dialog: "Do you want to allow software such as ActiveX controls and plug-ins to run?"

Looks really nice, but when you load the page on IE, it keeps displaying theactive-x warning, requesting permission to allow. My concern is that a lot of people dont understand this message. Automatically think there is something dangerous about the site, and deter them from visting. And they will not be able to navigate round the site effectively without the drop down menu!I'd imagine there has to be a way, possibly with a certain metatag maybe?

Reason being, GMail is designed using javascript. How come IE allows their javascripts to work, but no one elses?!Must be a way.And also, I use a .js file to keep the site resized and well positioned, regardless of browser. This script gets by no worries at all. Could it be because it is an external javascript, and not linked in within the html itself?And with other broswers, ie. Netscape, Firefox etc. Do any of them have issues with the Javascript / active-x warning?
