I want to be able to provide some reassuring text to my users (warning them in advance about the security warnings etc.) prior to installing Image Uploader for the first time. Rather than show them the text every time they come to use the uploader, I'd like to be able to determine if it is already installed, and then only display the text if it isn't.

If this possible, and if so, can you please explain how?

Thanks
Alex Makhov

Hello,

For ActiveX version you can use getActiveXInstalled method of ImageUploaderWriter class defined in helper iuembed.js script.

Thanks.... given that, I took a slightly different approach that I'll list here in case it's helpful to anyone else in the future....

Use of the uploader on my site is by registered users only, so I used the InitComplete event handler...

Code:
iu.addEventListener("InitComplete", "ImageUploaderID_InitComplete");


.. to make an ajax call back to the server, where I flagged against the user profile in the database that the user had successfully installed the uploader.

Then, when coming to use the installer, if that flag hasn't been set, I give my introductory message about the need to ok the security dialog, if not, then I just proceed to use the uploader component reasonably safe in the knowledge that they have already installed it.

Well, that’s the one of the good solutions.
