Hi,
How to identify the version of the active java plugin in IE using javascript?. I know how to identify using the ActivexObjects. Due to some reasons I don't want to use that. I would like to know is it possible to identify that using LiveConnect feature of the javascript.
Thanks in advance.

Hi,
That link also using activexObjects logic only. But as mentioned earlier I don't want to use that.
Is there any other logic??

netscape uses the navigator and IE can not use it. I believe you are stuck with the hand you are dealt.

Hi Eric,
Thanks for you help and care. I solved this by using Liveconnect and Javascript.

Browsers do a bad job detecting things, that is one thing I which they would improve on. Just like detecting the browser type. Now other browsers are pretending they are another browser byu a setting and you need 20 other cdes to tell that it is that other browser hiding behins code!

I am glad you got a solution
