Last updated on APRIL 21, 2023

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document provides details on the enhanced media object (MOBJ) functionality available with the 9.2.1 tools release.  For information regarding the storing of media objects in the database, see Document 2212744.1 E1: MOBJ: Media Object Attachments Moved into the Database starting with Tools Release 9.2.1.

The new feature ONLY works when ActiveX controls are NOT enabled.  When using OLEONLY or SupportActiveXIE = TRUE, this functionality will NOT be available.  See the Server Manager / ini Settings section below for more details.
Enhance Media Object uses browser native spell check so Spell Check button does not appear.

The following instances of media objects will always run in classic mode:

  • Running in portal
  • Embedded in applications
  • CafeOne layout
  • For accessibility users
  • Simplified server, user or role

For further details on setting up and configuring media objects, see:

For further details on working with activeX controls vs non-activeX controls see:


The document is intended for the system administrator who will be administering and troubleshooting the media object functionality within the EnterpriseOne software.
