    Have a look at QAxWidget. In fact, open Designer and drop a QAxWidget on your form. Right-click on the widget and there's an option that will present you with a list of all the activeX plugins available on your system. I believe the ones you want will be in that list.

    Save yourself some pain. Learn C++ before learning Qt.

    hi,
    I did not understand by the term embedding. Do you want to show the contents of those documents(like opening the document) in your widget or what? Is the widget a textarea or what?Kindly answer these clearly.

    I'd like to create a QAxWidget (or QWidget). It shows a Word document, PowerPoint slide, Excel document or PDF file.

    I know how to display PDF file inside QAxWidget, since there is a "Adobe PDF Reader" activeX control. How about word/powerpoint/excel?

    Thanks.

    See Containers in the Widget Box. It's the last one.

    Maybe you're using open source edition or your licence does not cover the ActiveQt module?
    The ActiveQt modules are part of the Qt Desktop Edition. They are not part of the Qt Open Source Edition.
    ActiveQt Framework

    Did you really need to resurrect a six-year-old post to ask a me too question with your very first post? Really?

    Have you bothered to read any of the ActiveQt documentation or examples (particularly the Web Browser)? Have you tried anything yourself or are you just expecting someone to do everything for you?
