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.=

Trying To Use The GoTo Method Of The Word.Application ActiveX Object In JavaScript

Dec 11, 2006

I am trying to use the Goto method of the Word ActiveX object. I am

Hope someone can help! Any help would be much appreciated

Event Capture On Autocomplete Dropdowns

Jan 20, 2006

Does anyone know how to event capture on an autocomplete dropdown - this would not be the underlying html element but only on the autocomplete dropdown itself.

I've never come across trying to capture autocompletes before (in fact, ideally i'm trying to ignore keypresses on the autocomplete and only capture those for the underlying input).

JQuery :: Iframe Capture Mousedown Event?

Mar 15, 2010

I'd like to execute some code when a user clicks inside an iframe (content on same domain). The following call works so far:

$("#iframeID").contents().find("body").doSomeStuff();

When the user clicks on a link within that frame, the frame posts back (2. site is being displayed)....from this time on the above mentioned call does not work anymore. The code is located outside, so it should not touch anything. The strange thing is, that it works for the first site, but not for sub sites?The structure looks like the following:

<html>
<head>
<the script with the call />

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">
Reporting
</div>
<div id="tabData" class="tabs">
Data
</div>
</div>
<!-- End Tabs Container -->

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.
