I have already written an ActiveX control in Delphi 7 that does almost everything I want it to do. I need someone who is experienced in ActiveX and Delphi to demonstrate a few concepts for me to enable me to finish my project.
These concepts are:
1. How to resize a TActiveForm so that the new size is reflected in Internet Explorer. Simply assigning new Height and Width properties seems to change the size of the form but not the space allocated to displaying it. This results in unwanted clipping.
2. How to register or otherwise assign this ActiveX control as the default handler for a specific file type. Sort of like a file association however I want someone double clicking on a file, or browsing to that type of file to see that file type appear inside my ActiveX control, inside an IE window. Like browsing to a PDF document brings up an ActiveX version of Acrobat within the IE window.
I require only the simplest explanation and any sample code in a new Delphi 5 or 7 project so that I can implement this myself. You will not have to edit my code.
1) Complete explanations and/or sample code projects in Delphi 5 or 7.
Internet Explorer 5+ running on Windows 98 or later operating systems.
