Handle ActiveX properties

Hi

I'm creating UserControl with TreeView control on it.
Can I handle TreeView properties (invoke properties dialog box) at design time like i do it with common TreeView?

p.s. TreeView is stretched on whole UserControl area, so user haven't to see any diferences working with it.

There is one ActiveX control Interface wizard.
It will do everything you want to do for you.
which includes mapping tree view - properties to the control.
Try it!

Yes
I can add some methods and properties to user control that way. But can I invoke TreeView property sheet by right click on the user control at design time and choose Property item in the popup menu?

This is not impossible with some hacking, but I would suggest using 'multicasting' technique:

Your control user adds Treeview to his form, and you declare it by 'withevents' statement.
Then both you and your control user can modify Treeview control and handle its events.

Simple sample: http://www.thescarms.com/vbasic/SubClassTxt.asp
(instead of creating new usercontrol for 'BetterTextBox', it uses a simple class to add functionality)
