How: OCX to display "Hello World" in Internet Explorer?
Posted on 1997-02-05
I need to know how I would set about making an OCX /ActiveX control that will simply display the text "hello world" in Internet Explorer.
I have the html side down pat, and I even have a basic dll/ocx that is loading.
Now the hard part: I am programming this is straight C++, that is no VB or MFC based answers... I also want to do this myself, so no ATL even.
The question then is, given that I have a "working" OCX that has only the IUnknown interface, that is currently (successfully) being loaded by internet explorer, what interfaces do I add and what do I do in them to make IE actually give me a dc to paint on?
Have fun with this one!
