MORE INFORMATION

An ActiveX control is a reusable software component that a developer can create either by using MFC or by using Active Template Library (ATL). ActiveX controls are designed for use both in ActiveX control containers and in Web pages. An ActiveX control can draw itself in its own window and can respond to events such as mouse clicks. For more information about MFC ActiveX Controls, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
