OLE, embedding and linking
Posted on 1999-01-25
A book said that in OLE, embedding needs much more disk space than linking. I thought I understood it: embedding saves the picture (if the outer application is Paint) in the VB application but linking only know where is the picture which is outside the VB application.
However, when checked the files I found both embedding and linking need save the pictures within VB application itselves. Both of them have got .frx files with the same size!
Perhaps I misunderstood embedding and linking? Can you help?
