How do you create an ActiveX Designer?  I am not sure where to get started, so I am looking for a generic answer.  I originally thought I would create an activex control, but that doesn't appear to work.  Thanks!

Hi redbaron,
The Professional and Enterprise editions of Visual Basic include the ActiveX Designer SDK, which can be used to create new ActiveX designers for use with Visual Basic. The ActiveX Designer SDK includes full instructions and sample code.

Keep in mind that the ActiveX Designer SDK requires a C++ compiler, such as Microsoft Visual C++. ActiveX designers cannot be written using Visual Basic.

I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Jason
