Abstract:You may experience problems using RAD-PADs on Vista as it requires a Microsoft Active X control which can be added in manually
Submitted By:LANSA Technical Support

Description:

RAD-PADs are commonly used during prototyping in place of real filters and command handlers.

Users can input notes, drag and drop images etc. onto them.

These RAD-PADs are only used by developers and not by end users.

Since Microsoft have stopped shipping this Active-X control called DHTMLedit your RAD-PADs might not work.

Note: LANSA’s support for the Vista operating system is outlined in Vista support in LANSA.

However, there is a workaround if you experienced this problem.

Solution:

A simple solution is to manually install the DHTMLEdit Microsoft Active-X control onto Vista.

This is the Microsoft website to download the Active-X control:

Visual LANSA Framework will also change the RAD-PAD design to not use this Active-X control in future versions.
