A means of adding a channel to an external object.


JScript - 5.0
Internet Explorer - 5.0
JavaScript syntax:IEmyExternal.AddChannel(aURL)
Argument list:aURLThe URL for a CDF file

With this method, you can use the Microsoft Active Channel system to share content delivered via channels.

This presents a dialog box allowing you to select a channel to add the channel defined in the argument or to specify a new one.

The argument value passed is a URL that points at a valid CDF file.

If the operation fails, an error event is generated and unless you are trapping the onError event with your own handler, the MSIE browser will present an error alert box.
