Accessing local client devices

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Jeronimo Bertran, Oct 15, 2003.

  1. We need to create an ASP.NET application that allows the user on the
    client machine to activate devices that are connected directly to his
    machine (cameras and devices connected to the RS232 port). We have written
    dll files that provide the interface with such devices. Howe can we, for
    instance, trigger the camera using a push button in an ASP.NET form?

    Thanks

    you have to create an activex control that can be hosted by IE. it should be
    signed, and installed locally. it will be tricky to make it safe for
    scripting compliant (you will have to validate that it is hosted by a page
    from your site). if the control is not the whole app, then you can write
    client script to control it.

    if your dll's are written in .net, the user must all install the 22mb
    runtime download.
