How to place Delphi Button on VC++ CDialog?

I'm trying to use Delphi GUI components wrapped up in a DLL from my VC++ application.

I've managed to get a Delphi Form to show up on the VC++ app, but was not able to get a Delphi button onto my VC++ CDialog box.

I get an access violation when I do this:
(In the Delphi DLL)
  TheButton = new TButton( ParentWindow );

where ParentWindow is the CDialog's m_hWnd member;

Anyone got some example code?

Umm...I'm actually using C++ Builder, not Delphi for this one... they're so similar it slipped my mind there.

Hi chrisyap.

I believe that the most easy way is make a activex, see how make one using Delphi documentation.
After this import the activex and use like a component control at VC++.

Good luck, Radler.

Hi Radler,

Have since been able to do what I wanted. I already knew I could do it with ActiveX, which might be the way to go.

Thanks,
Chris
