  • XCar : In need of a VB/VC developer. (maybe)

    Hmm, as the big question on "how to do GPS under Linux" comes up, I think I may have found a possible solution. Those who use, or have access to one of the windows solutions, you may wanna check this out :

    http://doc.trolltech.com/3.3/qaxcontainer.html

    What this would mean, is if an ActiveX application was made(using one of the few "developers" references, etc that come w/ some of these software packages(MapPoint)) it could be very easily added to this new software.

    Good find? Any takers?

    That is not quite good enough to run on Linux. The ActiveX controls themselves will be trying to call win32 stuff, which will not be present in linux. If you had some sort of activeX control that was platform agnostic, that would work fine.

        I just loaded a couple random acx's in Qt's control and they all seem to work just fine. The limitations and more info is available on the link above.

          Under Linux? Is this in WINE or something?
