Using Reflection

Reflection can run as an ActiveX control in a web page or within an application that supports ActiveX controls, such as Visual Basic. When running as an ActiveX control, Reflection can be manipulated directly by a user who has displayed the page or form; or it can be controlled programmatically by code included in the page or form. This topic describes techniques for users running the control directly.

When you run Reflection as an ActiveX control, the Reflection menus are not available. If your control uses the default configuration, the standard toolbar is visible (unless the system administrator who created the control has changed this configuration.

If you want access to Reflection features that are not available from the standard toolbar, you can right-click on the toolbar to add additional buttons and/or toolbars. Refer to the following examples.

To add a button that opens the Session Setup dialog box

1 Right-click on the standard toolbar in the Reflection control, and select Toolbar Setup in the context menu. This opens the Toolbar Setup dialog box.

2 Click the Predefined buttons tab. Under Categories, select Connection.

3 Locate the Connection Setup icon and drag it to the Reflection toolbar and click Close.

To add the Setup toolbar

1 Right-click in the Reflection window and point to Toolbars in the context menu, then select Setup in the list of toolbars.

2 Drag the toolbar to a new location if you need to in order to see all of the available buttons.
