Rendering OGL/D3D into an exporer window

Recommended Posts

HEy Does anyone know if it is possible to render stuff into an Internet Explorer window using either OpenGL or Direct3D?? And if so how do I do it?? I''ve been searching over at MSDN but couldn''t find anything usefull. I prolly have to make some sort of COM object and plugg it in somewhere.... If you have any thoughts or URL''s please reply. /Derwiath

Hey derwiath,

The only way I think you can achieve this is by writing an ActiveX control.I''m in the process of writing one of my own right now! (There''s a nasty bug in my code somewhere that causes my computer to crash.Once I figure it out I will have a skeletal ActiveX OpenGL control and I can then draw whatever I want onto it.) Be aware,if you choose to use an ActiveX control,then people surfing on linux browsers won''t be able to see your control (or so I''m told :p) Anyway,if you want,drop me an email at thegecko@tbaytel.net and I''ll try to help ya make a control of your own once I figure out where the hell the bug is.

Cheers!
