    Question What do you mean?

    I checked out Google for you and I found that the DirectX plugin was for 3d audio positioning or something like that.

    Here it is here: http://www.users.bigpond.com/prodigalson/plugins.htm


    I always know what you mean by Microsoft DirectX. The developer version of DirectX is called "DirectX SDK": http://msdn.microsoft.com/directx/sdk/,

    while the latest version for ordinary peopel is DirectX 9.0c: http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/directx.html

    I hope this helps you although it is pretty confusing. If this isn't what you meant please don't hesitate to reply back.

    Hehe, thanks for help, I was referring to how one checks for Direct X as you might check if a user has WMP, JS, Adobe, Flash, etc. installed or not... I did more searching and just keep finding the same list of plugin dectect scripts, so I am assuming now there is no way to check for DirectX via browser.

    i.e. List:

    Adobe Reader
    Java Plugin
    Macromedia Flash Player
    Macromedia Shockwave Player
    QuickTime
    RealPlayer 10
    Windows Media Player

    I don't know much about DirectX and even less about using it from JavaScript. But maybe you could do something like the following:

    Code:
    try {
    	// initiate DirectX object
    }
    catch (e)
    {
    	// browser does not have DirectX
    }
    obviously, not knowing about how you instantiate DirectX from JavaScript I can't say whether that would work!

    I suppose that would be an alternative to use.
