    Activex Tutorial


    Can anyone point me to a good tutorial or Book on Activex?

    I have been given the task of connecting to a 3rd party DB for which we have to use an OCX. I have succesfully created the wrapper classes in VS.NET (MFC) but cannot go any futher.

    All my programming has been in C/C++.

    First, I would probably not suggest using MFC. Some would disagree. ATL is a much more appropriate framework for activeX. There is way more to learn than can be covered in an online tutorial. First you must understand that ActiveX is really just COM objects. To understand COM Essential Com is your best bet. To understand ATL, look at the microsoft press book on ATL (Can't remember the name).
