    ActiveX dependencies?

    Dimitri Alexeev Newbie

      Hi,

      I would like to contribute some code to handle situations where ActiveX is disabled in IE6. The problem of IE6 is, some AJAX functions depend on ActiveX. This solution would be particularly useful to enable AJAX in conservative and restrictive environments, where IE6 is still The _Browser_ and ActiveX is still The _Evil_.

      In a nutshell: it is possible to replace "Microsoft.XMLHTTP" ActiveX with an alternative IFRAME based solution. The "Microsoft.XMLDOM" ActiveX can be replaced by XML-Islands (s MSDN). However, I need additional informations about effective ActiveX dependencies in RF in order to adapt the fall-back logic.

      At first sight there is a lot of ActiveX dependent JS-Libraries in RF-svn:

      XmlHttpRequest Wrapper 1.2.2
      prototypejs 1.6.0.3,
      jQuery 1.2.6,
      sarissa 0.9.9.3.
      Ext JS 2.0 Beta 1


      My question is: do you really use all above libraries for XMLHttpRequest-task or is there only one you decided for?
