    ActiveX  FLEX

      Is there a way to embed an ActiveX control (C#) into a FLASH or FLEX project? In another word can FLASH or FLEX support a control host container. Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

          Well, I don't know alot about ActiveX (well, I avoid it like the plague if I'm honest), but you could float an IFrame in the html wrapper then use an embed tag in it.

          I think it's very, very unlikely that you will ever be able to interact with ActiveX in any way other than what is possible through floating frames and using the AJAX bridge to send messages via javascript.

          Flash is cross platform and ActiveX is a Windows thing, so I imagine it will not be a high priority to get them talking directly. But maybe I'm wrong, I'm just basing this on my assumptions.
