Using ActiveX ctl in container app. & IE.

I`m writing C++ apps. since 1994. These apps. are used to configure some processes in a Unix server, via TCP/IP. Now I want to start using ActiveX components:
1) I want to convert my apps in containers (with AfxEnableControlContainer();
2) I want to write ActiveX components to use in my apps
3) I want to use these ActiveX components in Internet Explorer browser.

Resuming: I want to write ActiveX components to be compatible with my apps and with IE (both). It`s possible?

Someone can give me a sample or someone knows where can I get it?

While it is certainly possible to write controls that only work with a specific container, it requires quite a bit of code to do that. Start with a Wizard generated control and you should see it work in IE4.

Once you have a control, to embedded it into your application, you can use Project | Add to Project | Components and Controls and select your control. This will generate the headers and source files into your project that can create the control.
