Stingray Studio : Objective Toolkit User’s Guide : Chapter 20 ActiveHost Form Scripting and Editing Framework
Chapter 20 ActiveHost Form Scripting and Editing Framework
Overview
The Objective Toolkit forms engine works in concert with the ActiveScript Hosting Engine to provide a completely scriptable user interface. The ActiveHost Form Editing Engine is a scaled-down Visual Basic®-like editing and run-time environment that you can embed in your own applications.
The forms engine enables the end user to edit and script MFC graphical user interfaces interactively using a form-editing user interface. Adding forms editing to an application is as easy as modifying the parameters for the document template instantiated in the application’s InitInstance() member.
Because the ActiveHost form scripting and editing engine frequently uses the ActiveScript classes, we suggest you read Chapter 19, “ActiveScript Hosting Framework,” before you read this chapter.
