I have VC++ 6.0 and need to know how to create a simple Windows program without using MFC. I need the example to be dialog-based (like the standard Visual Basic application) -- not an SDI or MDI application. The other things that I need for it to do is use an ActiveX control (simply initialize and manipulate a few properties), and I need the message handler to be easily extended (i.e. please don't cut corners to shorten the code).
Basically, I just want to know how to create a simple application, with a dialog-based interface, using an ActiveX control, and with an in-depth message handler.
If you want to simply point to a web site, that's fine.
(BTW, this is not homework, I've just been itching to know this)
