Thank you for your question.


To insure your script works in both IE and Chrome/Firefox, please refer to this port for solution.


Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

I went through the links, but this only helps displaying the dwf file in mozilla/chrome, there is no way described to access the ADR control and access its controls programmatically. Please help over it.

Hello kkcnkc,


thanks for replying back.


I will explain my situation here.

I want to display dwf files in web browser.

So I followed the API provided for ADR and embeded the control.

The display work is fine.

I want to hide some of the commands, in IE am able to hide/show the command buttons over toolbar.

But in non IE browser such as Mozilla & Chrome, I cannot access the commands.

The IE version of accessing EComposisteViewer does not work with Mozilla.

So I was wondering did you try to acess the command or any other child control of the ADR?


Thanks Again.

I am also facing the same problem.

I could not access the EComposisteViewer object in FireFox or Chrome, but works fine in IE.

Did you find the solution for your problem ?
