Topic: ActiveX again

I know this activeX thing was here many times, but without successes.
I have created ActiveX component that encapsulates pdf.ocx.
It is used for viewing purposes on a website.
Before you ask why, PDF is beeing changed by my ocx before viewing.
Question is how pdf.ocx informes IE that link was clicked.
Because I guess pdf.ocx has no download capabilities, IE has to do it after clicking on link.
I know ocx is not documented and is not ... etc.
If everything would be documented, what's the sense having this forum ?!
Are there real developers here ?
Aandi Inston always fights against developers using ocx, so please save it this time!
OCX is only fo IE ?! Why ?
Let's settle this in court ;-)
Another monopolistic move of Microsoft ?
If its not documented, that only because nobody made documentation YET !
