I don’t have a license for web, but I’m feeling it out for a project and I’m just curious if this would work.
I have a few home-automation devices. They switch on lights or outlets, activate various servo motors, etc. It’s all through an old kit I installed many years ago. All those devices are programmable via an Active-X control the manufacturer made available.
I’d like to make a standalone xojo web project that runs on a Windows machine at the house that allows me to control these items remotely via a website. So, for example I’d like to be able to pull up the site from a computer at work, click a button and shut the blinds at home.
I have another Active-X that can generate images from my security-cam, it would be cool to be able to turn it on and embed auto-refreshing images in a page so I can see the dog!
Is this possible? Can you add a server-side Active-X control and manipulate it via code in a Windows standalone Xojo Web app the way you can in a Windows desktop app? What do you do about functions that need a hWnd since this is basically a windowless application?
Thanks in advance for any insight.
