Re: Active X
- ActiveX is the third generation of OLE technology (Object Linking and
Embedding), the technology used in Windows to embed programs (plugins)
into another programs. The first version was OLE, the next OLE2, and
for the third version Microsoft changed this name (OLE3) to ActiveX,
because it's a jump of the technology to Internet world.
Basically, an ActiveX file is a DLL file (Dinamic Link Library) with
the functions and resources of the program. This ActiveX file is the
same that plugin for Netscape, Firefox or Safari, with some
differences, for example, an ActiveX plugin is registered in the
system and any program could embed it (Internet Explorer, for
example). Netscape plugins need to be in 'Plugins' browser folder.
QuickTime ActiveX object in windows is "QTPlugin.ocx" file. This file
is used by Internet explorer to create QT viewer into the browser.
ActiveX is only used in Windows.
