[archive] Questions about future versions of Thin Client

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 25 June 2003]

Hello Acucorp,

I visited the Benelux conference and there I heard that in the future there would be support for calling windows DLL's in a future Thin Client version. When is this scheduled for release? I see so many beatyful programs from Gisle wich all use Windows API calls via DLL's and are very said I can't use them in the Thin Client.

I am also interested in any kind of information about the upcoming Java version of Thin Client. We use the grid control very often. Do you plan to support this control?

Andr?

A good way to get round the problem of not being able to call the API from thin-client is to create an active-x control (maybe using vb) that puts wrappers around them.

We have done this and it all works well from thin-client. It would be simplier if we could just call dll's on the local machine when running thin-client though !!.

I haven't thought of making my own ActiveX controls, but it sure is a good idea if I want to implement some API calls before Acucorp gives us DLL support in Thin Client.

Thanks!
