How the <OBJECT> tag works

The CODEBASE parameter indicates to the browser where to look for the Web thin client if it is not installed on the target system. Internet Explorer automatically offers to download and install the Web thin client, prompting most users to accept the digital signature provided by Micro Focus.

Note: If the user's security settings are high or customized to prohibit ActiveX controls, the user cannot install the Web thin client. If the user's security settings are low, the control installs without confirmation from the user.

In the HTML document, you can introduce the Web thin client with the <OBJECT> tag and then supply a script to invoke the object through either a window event or a push-button event. For information on using the object interface, see the next section. However, you need not use scripting in order to invoke the control with the <OBJECT> tag.
