Is active widgets based on ActiveX controls?
Does this mean that only if I use "XML-based table" data model for my grid then only my implementation is dependent in IE proprietary activeX (MSXML DOM i think or anything also).
Ya it does cause some heartburn in my organisation if I use MS specific XML dom implementation, it does make your solution not only browser specific but also OS specific.
Alex, can you please again elaborate for forum's benefit that what steps the grid library has taken to make it browser/OS dependent.Also what features/apis should one avoid using in the grid if browser/os independence is a requirement in the solution.
Many thanks this wonderful grid library.
And I belive eithen thought the IE xml requester is activex it never gets blocked anyway. And firefox supports this interface cross platform so there is nothing to worry about using it.
In IE7 beta2 it tries to create an ActiveX first and then creates native XMLHttpRequest object if ActiveX fails.
ActiveWidgets XML and CSV datasources will not work with ActiveX disabled in IE5.5 and IE6 but should still work in IE7 because IE7 has native XMLHttpRequest object.
Firefox/Mozilla don't use ActiveX and work fine on Mac OSX, Linux and Windows.
But does it also use ActiveX for MSXML DOM.
Does the xml data Island Examples shipped with grid library uses ActiveXControl other than XMLHttpRequest ?.On our machines ActiveXControls are disabled and all the examples which xml data-island based do not open.
Please answer our query .
