Using Stand-Alone Versions of Controls with ASP.NET Control

This article describes how to use stand-alone versions of ActiveX control and Java applet as well as custom embedding scripts with Image Uploader ASP.NET control. It may be useful when you deploy a private-label version of Image Uploader or upgrade .cab and .jar files obtained from Aurigma without updating the ASP.NET control itself. If, however, you deploy Image Uploader using embedding scripts you should deploy a private-label version in the way described in the How to Use Private-label Versions topic.

Walk through the following steps to configure the ASP.NET control to launch stand-alone or private-label version of Image Uploader.

  1. Obtain *.cab and *.jar files as well as private-label embedding instructions from Aurigma. For example, you have got and MyUploader.jar files.
  2. Add a new folder to your web application or use an existing one.
  3. Put your and MyUploader.jar files to this folder.
  4. Specify the name of this folder as a value of the ScriptsDirectory property. You can use relative URL.
  5. Specify and MyUploader.jar filenames using the ActiveXControlCabFileName and JavaAppletJarFileName properties respectively.
  6. Use the ActiveXControlVersion and JavaAppletVersion properties to specify version numbers of the ActiveX control and Java applet.
  7. Specify CLSID and PROGID of the ActiveX control as values of the ActiveXControlClassId and ActiveXControlProgId properties respectively.
  8. Specify Java applet class name with the JavaAppletClassName property.
  9. Set ActiveXControlUseCustomCodeBase and JavaAppletUseCustomCodeBase properties to true value.

All the information you need to specify using these properties will be provided to you by Aurigma. If some parameters were not sent you should use default values.

The code sample below demonstrates how to implement this.

<cc1:ImageUploader ID="ImageUploader1" runat="server" 
        height="400" width="600"
        ActiveXControlCabFileName="" JavaAppletJarFileName="MyUploader.jar"
        ActiveXControlVersion="6,0,2,0" JavaAppletVersion=""
        ActiveXControlUseCustomCodeBase="True" JavaAppletUseCustomCodeBase="True">

If you use other Image Uploader-related classes (ShellComboBox, Thumbnail, and UploadPane) do not forget to perform the steps listed above for each class using their own CLSID, PROGID, and class name values. These values should be obtained from Aurigma too.

In the case when you need to use your custom Image Uploader embedding scripts you should put them to the folder specified with the ScriptsDirectory property and set IUEmbedScriptUseCustomCodeBase property to true.


When you customize Image Uploader embedding scripts you should not rename them, otherwise it will not be possible to use these scripts with Image Uploader ASP.NET control.
