What is the best approach?

    Hello, friends,

    We need to create a user control (COM) in which it should be able to
    retrieve binary data from a given website after a user selects an item ID and
    clicks Retrive button.

    We then can put this user control in a html page (generated by .asp page) so
    that internet users can use our data stored in our web server.

    Any reference paper or sample source code?

    Thanks a lot...

    (We thought about DCOM, but it does not sound like a good approach nowadays,
    right?)

    Why use a custom COM object at all?

    Use msxml2.XMLHttp object to post a query to an ASP page and have that ASP
    page return XML.

    The client machines will only need a browser and not custom ActiveX
    controls.
