I have it at work and will check back if no-one answers.

Remember, the ActiveX control is derived from CWnd and you can just create the control with CWnd::Create just like you would do it with an edit box or a button.

To create an ActiveX control in CWnd object,just call CWnd member function:

BOOL CWnd::CreateControl( LPCTSTR lpszClass, LPCTSTR lpszWindowName, DWORD dwStyle, const RECT& rect, CWnd* pParentWnd, UINT nID, CFile* pPersist = NULL, BOOL bStorage = FALSE, BSTR bstrLicKey = NULL );

BOOL CWnd::CreateControl( REFCLSID clsid, LPCTSTR lpszWindowName, DWORD dwStyle, const RECT& rect, CWnd* pParentWnd, UINT nID, CFile* pPersist = NULL, BOOL bStorage = FALSE, BSTR bstrLicKey = NULL );

Thanks linyf. I've been using Create all this time and CreateControl is definitely more correct.  

zxw, Create the control inside your CView::OnInitialUpdate.

Ahhh.. The confusion is gone!

When you add the control to your project, the control will create a header file for you.  The CreateControl function is called by the Create function.  So we're both right!

virtual BOOL Create(LPCTSTR lpszClassName,
  LPCTSTR lpszWindowName, DWORD dwStyle,
  const RECT& rect,
  CWnd* pParentWnd, UINT nID,
  CCreateContext* pContext = NULL)
{
  return CreateControl(GetClsid(), lpszWindowName, dwStyle, rect, pParentWnd, nID); }

// And how I do my create function!

m_pMyControl->Create( NULL, NULL, WS_VISIBLE, rcClient, pWnd, IDC_MY_CONTROL );

I have an ActiveX control named GVBox that shows gif files, i want to put it into the MFC Sample project provided by VC5.0 named saver(screen saver example), and following
the codes i added,

CGvbox* m_pGIFBox;

int CDrawWnd::OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct)
{
      if (CWnd::OnCreate(lpCreateStruct) == -1)
            return -1;
      
      int nSpeed = AfxGetApp()->GetProfileInt("Config", "Speed", 1);
      if (nSpeed < 0)
            nSpeed = 0;      
      SetSpeed(nSpeed);

      CRect r(10,10,100,100);
      m_pGIFBox = new CGvbox;
                      ASSRT(m_pGIFBox->Create(_T(""),WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE,r,this,IDC_GVBOXCTRL1));
                  m_pGIFBox->Set_FileName(_T("d:\\temp\\mail.gif"));
                  m_pGIFBox->SetEnabled(TRUE);

      return 0;
}

Remeber my first comment, put it in OnInitialUpdate...

Why are you bothering with the pointer and the new?

Go ahead and make life easy on ya...

Add to your CDrawWnd header file:

CGVBox m_GIFBox;

and put in your OnInitialUpdate

m_GIFBox.Create( _T( "" ), WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, CRect( 10, 10, 100, 100 ), this, IDC_GVBOXCTRL1 ));

MUCH cleaner and you won't have to worry about the deleting!
