Using windows active-x controls ?

Is it possible to use an active-x control (server side ocx file) in BSP pages. In a similar way that they are used in asp

i.e implement something like


set Posi = Server.CreateObject("WINPOSX.WinPOSXCtrl.1")



or make use of such components via ABAP code ?

I'm looking into porting as MS asp web into bsp and this particular control is used to authenticate credit card transactions.

Any feedback on this is much appreciated.

    In javascript yes (WAS is javascript friendly)

    per example :

    <script language="JavaScript">

    fExcel = function()


    var xls = new ActiveXObject("Excel.Application");

    xls.visible = true;

    var newBook = xls.Workbooks.Add;



    xls.ActiveWorkBook.ActiveSheet.PageSetup.Orientation = 2;

    xls.ActiveWorkBook.ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PaperSize = 5;


    newBook.Worksheets(1).Cells(2,1).value="First Column, Second Cell";

    newBook.Worksheets(1).Cells(1,2).value="Second Column, First Cell";

    newBook.Worksheets(1).Cells(2,2).value="Second Column, Second Cell";

    newBook.Worksheets(1).Name="My First WorkSheet";





    <form name="MyForm" id="MyForm">

    <button onClick="fExcel();">Excel</button>

    • Ok I did not think of that possibility,

      However my problem is that I have to run this Active-X server side. I belive this wil run on the client machine.

      I'm currently looking into ways to implement this as a rfc-server app using librfc32.dll

    I thinks that run an Active-X server side is alway a bad solution... So investigate an other way 😉
