hosting a winforms control in IE, where does activation occur?

P: n/a
When you host a winforms control in IE using the object tag, do you need to
be serving the control from ISS? If so, why? I would think that activation
happens entirely on the client side so you wouldn't need any extra processing
on the server side?

Hi Ben,

Thank you for posting.

As for IE host winform control, it is pure client-side behavior and the
winform control is hosted in the client IE browser's CLR host. There is no
code execution in server-side IIS server, IIS server is just used to help
the client user correctly locate the page and download the winform control
assembly over http.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Steven. I wasn't able to get this to work but I'm using IE7 Beta2, so
that might be why.

I'll give it another shot once the final is out.
