I ran into the ActiveX control selection in desktopx and I was wondering how to really use it;
I did some research on this topic and I ran into stardock's documentation explaining how to use the "microsoft web browser" control to get a webpage right on the desktop.
However, I'm really looking for examples or tutorials on how to use the microsoft directanimation control.
If I understand correctly, the activeX controls allow a developer to reference a particular section of code for use with their own; essentially my goal then is to reference microsoft's code for animations, particularly those you see when a window is closed or open (EX: when you close a window in vista, it doesn't just dissappear; rather it fades out towards the taskbar. Similarly, when it is opened, it doesn't just appear, rather it fades in from where it was started)
So is this possible?
How do I do it?
I've tried playing around with the commands but I can't seem to get DX to let me do anything; for example trying out control.image or control.inputimage and setting them "=" some image on my computer brings an error.
I guess I'm not really sure about the syntax there or if there's just something I'm completely missing.
Thanks in advance,
