I just recently started flirting with Active X components.  I just created an Active X layout using Visual Interdev -and- when I view it in MS Explorer, it works fine.  When I view it in Netscape 4.0, the Active X component simply does not appear.  Can anyone help?

The reason for this is that Active X is ONLY supported in MS Internet Explorer. Netscape does not, and does not plan to, support any Active X control.

To have a control appear in both browsers, use JavaScript or a Java Applet, or use CGI.
