    Q: Orion Studios IEBackStage and IEStudio OCX's

    Hi,

    Has anyone had any experience with the abovementioned controls from
    http://www.orionstudios.com? I foolishly paid for the two, hoping that the
    missing Help files might miraculously show up in the registered version, but
    I was wrong. Numerous requests for help, with regards to the cryptic Methods
    and Properties have gone unanswered, or I have been told that an awesome new
    product is on the way and that I can have it at a discount price. I only
    want the Help files for *these* products ...


    Outwardly, the controls are great, allowing access to little known IE4/5
    options, however, the absence of the Help file makes them all but useless ie
    No method to tell me how to load a page locally.

    Any help with these controls would be most appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards,
    Tony Jones

    Tony-
    I have the iebackstage one too, and I was disappointed with the help
    files also. Anyways, here's the extent of the help file.
    http://www.orionstudios.net/iebackst...hitecture.html - That's the help
    file, except on the web. The local version I found in my Program Files\Orion
    Studios\Orion Studios directory. It's pretty weak, it just lists the methods
    and properties, and a short description. Doesn't explain how to use it at
    all though. *sigh* I don't have the istudio one, so I can't help you there.
    (I can't find the url to download it, seems to be non-existant now)
    Hope this helps.

    -Rick

    Hi Rick,

    Thanks for the URL. Yes, I see that it's the same as the meagre "Help" file
    content. Amazing that they would produce pretty good products without some
    form of guide.
    Ah well...buyer beware ...

    Kind regards,
