    The Windows Thumbnail control is used to show image thumbnails and internet shortcuts.

    See Microsoft for more information on the Thumbnail control.

    My sample application 'Easy-Favorite' uses the thumbnail control to show a thumnail of any web page. If you want to add your favorite internet link (URL) to Easy-Favorite, just drag & drop the URL from Internet Exporer or Netscape onto Easy-Favorite. So Easy!

    The sample application Easy-Favorite contains...

    • OLE Drag & Drop
    • ThumbCtl Control
    • How to insert CFormView derived class to Dialog based program
    • Create Short-Cut

    I think this article is very useful for shell program developers or IE developers. Any questions - send an email to me!

    Iam using an Thumbctl ActiveX control to display a Thumbnail for an Html page.I have an object tag for Thumbctl and i have written a function using javascript.Whenever i run this page by typing in the browser it doesn't show up anything.The page goes blank.
    Please suggest me how should i go about this.
    <%
    Set str= server.CreateObject("Thumbctl.Thumbctl.1")

    str.displayfile("C:/Prashant/index_mail.htm")
    %>

    <OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:1D2B4F40-1F10-11D1-9E88-00C04FDCAB92" id=Thumbnail width="100%" height="100" >
    </OBJECT>


    The browser goes blank showing up nothing.
    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanx
    Prashant
