Detailed Description

QAxSelect dialog can be used to provide users with a way to browse the registered COM components of the system and select one. It also provides a combo box for selecting desired sandboxing level. The CLSID of the selected component can then be used in the application to e.g. initialize a QAxWidget:

QAxSelect select;
if (select.exec()) {
    QAxWidget *container = new QAxWidget;
