    Unhappy ActiveX question

    Hi there, I recently started using MSVC and have stumbled on the "Insert ActiveX control" in the create dialog bit of the resource editor.

    It's all rather exciting and fabulous - I test my dialog in the layout tester and it all works fine; I compile and run the program and the dialog with the ActiveX control doesn't load (removing the activeX control lets the dialog load fine).

    I'm guessing I have to be including a dll for the control or something but I've no idea on how to do it, any help would be appreciated!

    thanks,

    dom

    Unfortunately, using ActiveX with VC++ isn't plug-n-play like with VB.

    This is an overview on using ActiveX with MFC.

    THanks,

    I dont use MFC (yet) so it looks like a good deal of reading!


    cheers
