Running Active-X Control Inside FM

Recommended Posts


I have an active-x control that I would like to be able to run "inside" filemaker. This active-x control is a graphical viewer that exposes navigational and selection controls for viewing a 3D object. Within the control, 3D "sub-objects" can be clicked and the active-x control provides data that is nested within the 3D sub-object. I would like to be able to run this control in FM. When an object is clicked, I would like to be have filemaker find and display a record that contains additional data about the object that is stored in FM. Obviously, there will need to be a unique data field in the active-x object being clicked that also exists within a table in FM. Does anyone know how I would be able to bring this active-x control into FM to do what I am describing above? Any suggestions at all would be appreciated.
