OWC11 and VS2005



hello Alvin,

I have had problems using OWC on the server side in VS 2005, am trying
to use it in the client side
but the journey has not been smooth.
Does VS 2005 allow OWC usage on the client side?
i looked around in the forum and found contradicting opinions from

"2005 does not allow OWC to show up. I really have no idea why this
has been
disabled. "

"you can only automate the objects in 2005 thru scripting client side
using either
javascript or vbscript or both. "

Could you please let me know if using OWC as a client side object is
possible in 2005?

Cheers !

It's not contradictory, both statements are true. OWC is client side, you
use it by embedding it in a web form. there is also a server side component
to it as well. In addition, you can't drag and drop OWC on a web form
designer in visual studio for vs 2005 and vs 2008. Only embedding will work.
It's specifically blocked from the designer and there are no workarounds.
