First I want to mention that you can have as many points as you want for this question (up to 200).
I'm having problems using ActiveXes with Delphi and it seems that these are Delphi bugs.
The library I'm using is the OCXes that come with WANG Imaging - It's free as an add-on for win95 and you can download it at http://www.eastmansoftware.com/products/imagingpro/instal95.htm
This library is for operating on images of different formats and theoretically it does what I want. Also I have to mention that it work very well with VB, and on the other hand very buggy with Delphi.
I try to use the method "TImageAdmin.Append", where "TImageAdmin" is "IMGADMIN.OCX". For me it will produce different errors depanding on Delphi version: With Delphi 3 the error message is '???????????????', but on the other hand with D2 the error message is a bit better: 'exception class EOIeError with message 'Illegal function call Bad optional parameter'. I must mention that exactly the same call, with the same optional parameters, works well with VB. Also: I don't want to post any optional parameters - Delphi makes them not optional when installing the ActiveX so I have to post them anyway! Is there a way to make them optional again - some settings I don't know?
Please, if you want to help me, the first thing is try it on your own machine so I'm sure it's not only my problem. -Do the ActiveXes work bad with Delphi - is it a known fact?
