ASPxObjectContainer Overview

The ASPxObjectContainer control allows media data (flash, image, video, audio) to be present on a web page. The source of the media data is specified by the ASPxObjectContainer.ObjectUrl property. By default, the type of media data is automatically defined by the ASPxObjectContainer control. To manualy specify the media data type, use the ASPxObjectContainer.ObjectType property. To customize the container object's settings, use the ASPxObjectContainer.ObjectProperties property.

The ASPxObjectContainer control provides you with a comprehensive client-side functionality, implemented using JavaScript code:

The control's client-side API is enabled if the ASPxObjectContainer.EnableClientSideAPI property is set to true, or the ASPxObjectContainer.ClientInstanceName property is defined, or any client event is handled.

Note the ASPxClientObjectContainer object is disabled until the ASPxObjectContainer.ObjectUrl property is specified.
