    um i mean i wanna make a custom control just like in visual basic if anybody worked with it you make usercontrols very easy almost like creating activex controls in c++ but with these from c++ you can't put them in the exe.. so how do you exactly make a custom control in mfc c++ to use it as many times as you want..

    You derive a class from the desired controls base class (ie CMyEdit from CEdit ), subclass as required (add functionality to your requirements).

    Include this class in any required apps (CMyEdit).

    If use resource editor add controls as base type (CEdit) and then edit generated code to change base class (CEdit) to your subclassed type (CMyEdit)

    If creating at run time declare as subclassed type (CMyEdit) and use the base classes' functionality ( CEdit.Create() )
