Interact with an ActiveX via a context menu

Hi there,

I've built an Asp.Net web site which launchs a ActiveX executable. When I
launch this activeX from a session, with the session account, an icon
associated with this activeX is displayed in the notification zone of the
taskbar. Then I can display the contextual menu of this activeX.

Now when I load my we site, of course nothing appears in the toolbar since
the activeX is started "in the background", and I need a way to make it
appears to be able to interact with the ActiveX. That is to say, to be able
to state a sort of display to the aspnet account...

Any hint ?

Best regards

you need to change your approach a little. create a .net (console or winform)
that hosts the active/x control and put it in the startup group for your
login. this app shoudl implement .net remoting and act as a proxy for the
active/x control. then you aspx page that need to talk to the active/x
control will use remotimg.

Hi, I'm looking of a way (preferred - a ready class or dll) to customize the context menu. many application has more controls inside the context menu (like textbox, sliders, checkbox, panel etc'). is there a way making this without writing my own context menu (meaning, popup form or something) ? Please don't post commercial products to this topic thanks.

I'm working on a plotting control. The plotting control will have a context menu with basic commands for "scaling", "zooming", etc. Is there a way that, from the parent form, I can add more commands to the control's context menu? I'm envisioning a case where the control has a set of context menu items, and the parent form also has a set of context menu items. Thanks.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
