Montage - An ActiveX Container for Dynamic Interfaces

Gordon Woodhull and Stephen C. North
AT&T Laboratories-Research


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).
