The SlinkX ActiveX control is a powerful, yet easy to use control which allows you to control Slinke-s from you own programs at a high level. SlinkX actually consists of three parts:
|An ActiveX Control (slinkx.ocx)|
|A COM server (slinkeserv.exe)|
|A proxy dll (slinkeprx.dll)|
Each ActiveX Control connects to the Slink-e not directly, but instead via a server. This allows multiple applications to share one or more Slink-es. This also provides the ability to use DCOM - a distributed version of COM which allow COM clients and servers to be on different machines. This means that your ActiveX-based Slink-e programs do not have to be running on the same machine that the Slink-e is plugged into.
