We developed an ActiveX plug-in for PowerPoint on Windows The control allows content to be created in some graphical application, transferred to a PowerPoint presentation, and manipulated in 3D in PowerPoint in a view-only manner. Graphical application
is a scientific application which provides ability to create atoms, molecules, defining their bonding and defining surfaces, so user basically create molecules, proteins into the application and transfer it into ActiveX control using copy-paste.
We want to shift this technology from ActiveX to other, so that it can be used by any software like Microsoft Word, SharePoint, Web browser, and Microsoft Excel.
Can someone tell me alternative of ActiveX? What other technologies can be used to develop same functionality in Microsoft domain? Any pointers indicating for Advantage and disadvantage of using ActiveX and other proposed technology?
I heard about Silverlight, but I do not know anything how it would be useful and how it is beneficial over ActiveX?
