I've been using the 2013 Navisworks Redistributable Active X Control within a C# Asp.Net page, which I've managed to do. But I'm having some problems when trying to add controls to select a different .nwd file to view.
Seems strange as within Visual Studio the control is accessible and all the intellisense is available.
Has anyone done anything similar, or have any advice?
For the record, I had no idea what Navisworks was until a few days ago!
Incidentally, for anyone else looking to do the same Xiaodong Liang has some really helpful posts here http://adndevblog.typepad.com/aec/2012/05/naviswor
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
This is the first time I heard such issue. I am intersted in giving a test. Could you tell me which Redis control you are using , SDI or MDI? In addition, are you running locally or you have published it to server?
I think though that there is no real point in making an asp.net page for the redistributable ActiveX, would you agree?
If it's only possible to access the control using vbscript anyway, then a simple html page with vbscript is all you can do it would seem?
I think if we can somehow use the Integrated API within a silverlight application we could make something useful.
I would be very interested in your thoughts.
I do not think this problem you reported is related with the difference of Redis and Intergrated control. If you would like to know more of them, please refer to these blogs:
- making an asp.net page for the redistributable ActiveX
I think it is OK. I vaguely remember I did so in the past.
- access the control using vbscript only?
- use the Integrated API within a silverlight application
sorry i have not an info at this moment
