I tried it, but I can't find the type I want in the combo -
__TSplitter__. I want to make an ActiveX of the splitter to try and use it with VB.

How exactly ?

I saw that also the TChart doesn't appear in the combo.
Sorry, I don't know the reason for this behavior.

Yo,

You cannot wrap TSplitter in an ActiveX-Control. If you take a look in its source code, it requires two Delphi-components to work. This will not work in the ActiveX-Framework because you cannot guarantee that there are ActiveX-Controls with an Alignment property.
Write the splitter control by yourself ! It is not that hard.

Hope this helps,
