Abstract - Technical Program - 2nd USENIX Windows NT Symposium
Montage - An ActiveX Container for Dynamic Interfaces
Gordon Woodhull and Stephen C. North
Montage is a customizable, embeddable ActiveX container. Its
client objects may be positioned dynamically by an external layout
agent. Montage manages toolbars and user interface modes,
integrating disparate components into a single, consistent interface.
An important part of this task is supporting "group repositories" of
related objects for data transfer operations such as cut-and-paste,
drag-and-drop, save and load. Montage does not rely on large
external libraries such as the Microsoft Foundation Classes, and thus
is relatively lightweight. The prototypical Montage application
is an embeddable display for dynamic networks (abstract graphs).
