How to set title for a usercontrol.

Hi

I forgot where to set the title for a usercontrol (the one will be listed in the component list). I have tried to fill all the boxes when making the .ocx file in the "option", but the title is always Project1 :-(

I am using VB5 Control Creation trial version.

It sounds like you have a custom control rather than a user control. Go to Project-> Properties. On the first tab (General), fill in "Project Description" and recompile. To see the new name in a project, remove any existing reference to the old name, close the References dialog, the open the References dialog again. This should show you an entry under the new name.

victorlong,

from VB choose 'View' then 'Object Browser'
from the first drop-down choose your project
then from the 'Classes' window choose your control
right click your control, then choose 'Properties'
enter the new user friendly description in the 'Description' box.

Kind of tricky huh?  jjames

victorlong, was it the description of the project or the user control itself you wanted to change?

Hi tomook

Thank you for your help and sorry for my delay :-)

Yes, your answe is what I want.

But what is the difference between "user control", "custom control" and "AxtiveX control"? I found the books don't say very clear....

Custom controls are ActiveX controls, two names for the same thing. A "User Control" is a VB component which is an abstraction for building custom controls.
