Simple question on creating an ActiveX application?

I see so many samples on active X controls on different books. They all seem to be simple Active X controls. What I dont see is samples of an Active X control that looks like a windows app with
a menu and a toolbar. How do you do that. Is there anywhere I can find any
doc on it. I'm trying to write an ActiveX app with full menu system the
pulls up dialogs, a tool bar and status bar. Not for the net of course but
for an intranet.

Thanks

You need to develop (or use) a shell that loads the ActiveX object in and manages the display of the Control its toolbars and its menu bar.  We have done this and it works quite well.  The ActiveX object gets loaded into the shell and is queried (through its ActiveX interface) for menus and toolbars that are unique to the ActiveX control.  It is a simple question but a not-so-simple soulution to work toward.
