Cannot display data in ActiveX Barcode cab solution in Java Script


I am using your ActiveX Barcode cab file. I can get barcodes to show when your recommended object/param setup is used as part of an html load.However, when I programmatically append the code into an existing html DOM using javascript, it does not interpret the <param> values and just dispay a generic barcode (12345678910).

<object classid="clsid:0C3874AA-AB39-4B5E-A768-45F3CE6C6819"
id="IDAutomationBarcode" width="90" height="30"
data="IDAutomationLinear.cab">
<param name="DataToEncode" value="12654760">
<param name="ShowText" value="0">
<param name="BarHeight" value="0.5">
</object>

it displays a barcode but not the barcode/value that I programmed. The text below the barcode is something like "123456789012". Meaning that the *.cab is not recognizing the <param> code because ShowText=0, therefore it should not be displaying the value below the barcode.

I have solved my problem. For future reference: IDAutomationLinear.cab does not work when the <object>/<param> example code is inserted programmatically from javascript using createElement, setAttribute, appendChild for the <object> and for each <param> independently. However, it works when your example code is inserted as one full string using newobject.innerHTML = "<object .................><param ....><param .....></object>"
