User (Legacy) Posted February 1, 2005 Report Share Posted February 1, 2005 Hi, I have purchased chart FX developer studio and plan to see which charts we're likely to need before getting those versions for distriubtion, however before I start I need some info regarding licensing. I read the text on licensing regarding use in Com objects but the example was in C++ so I didnt really understand it. I'm using VB6 and I have been asked to implement charts in our software by use of an OCX that we can call. i.e. An OCX with a few boolean options and the ability to pass a recordset to the Chart FX control (any, but most probably Client Server). Therefore we'd end up with our own OCX with Chart FX's called from there, opposed to referencing Chart FX directly from our product. I really hope that makes sense so far! The thing that really concerns me is how licensing will work. What is to stop someone using our control to use charts? Personally i'd prefer to reference the Chart FX control directly, but i'm not the boss, so..... Firstly, is what i'm proposing in breach of any licensing regulations? Secondly, how would I go about doing that? The only thing I can think of would be to pass the license string from our main application into our Com object, then into the Chart FX object - is this correct? Any help would be much appreciated. I'm fine with programming standard exe projects and dll files but i've never attempted a Com object before.
