    Hi,

    I’m trying to embed an ActiveX control in a Formativ HTMLDialog. Whenever I try, though, I get a dialog appropriate to my general security settings in IE – either “Your security settings prohibit this” or “A control is trying to access information – allow this?” or, if I turn off all my security settings, then no dialog is displayed – but that sort of lack of security is an undesirable situation.

    Is there any way to change, preferably programmatically, how Formativ handles the security of embedded HTML? Is it possible for Formativ to seamlessly allow all embedded ActiveX controls in HTML dialogs, considering their controlled nature? Have I missed a setting that would allow me to control Formativ’s embedded HTML separately to IE?

    Thanks in advance,

    Matt Beamish

    Formativ doesn’t currently expose the IE Security Manager interface. As you have summized, Formativ uses the Windows system security settings for the IE sessions it uses.

    I have added an entry to our enhancement database requesting this API be exposed to the Formativ language. We’ll consider this request at our next feature review. I expect this request will stand a reasonable chance of being introduced during a forthcoming maintenance release.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your response; that’s a fair enough call.

    It seems like serving the HTML from a location on a network drive – and therefore a trusted location – and changing the “Local Intranet” details to allow ActiveX, might turn out to be an acceptable solution in the short term.

    Thanks again,
