I would like to allow the user to choose a file, then show the user a preview of that file.
I am using VAST 7.5.2
I only need this to work on Windows, so an OLE solution would be acceptable.
I hope I am making this more complicated than it has to be.
Googling led me to the WebBrowser Control. Is this the best solution? http://www.microsoft.com/technet/archiv ... x?mfr=true
In the past, I have generated non-visual OLE wrappers for COM/OLE components (I in no way an expert in those technologies, so may be mis-using some terms), but I can't figure out how to generate an OLE wrapper for the WebBrowser control that will let me add a preview area to a window. What am I missing?
I found a reference to the OleExamples application, and found an #examplesForLauncher method, but that method has no senders.
This code seemed promising: "OlexContainerExample new open"
But menu option File->Open... looks for *.CON files (I don't know what those are supposed to be)
Menu option Edit -> Insert Object... allows me to "Create from File" (which sounds like exactly what I want), but that just locks up the development environment until I terminate the develop environment process.
Any tips or hints would be greatly appreciated.
