RunTime Error 406

Run-time error '406':

Non-modal forms cannot be displayed in this host application from an ActiveX DLL, ActiveX Control, or Property Page.

I get this error when I try to show a form modeless in an ocx loaded in IE.

The question is, why I don't get this error when I run the ocx from VB (in debug). Then the form apears normally.

How can I show a modeless form in IE also after I compile the ocx (not started from VB)?

Visual Basic enables you to test whether a client supports nonmodal forms through the App.NonModalAllowed read-only property.

If App.NonModalAllowed Then
    frmChart.Show
Else
    frmChart.Show vbModal
End If

If you consider that the vbModal constant is 1 and that the App.NonModalAllowed returns 0 or -1, you can do everything in just one statement:

frmChart.Show (1 + App.NonModalAllowed)

Unfortunately, you can't test this feature without COMPILING the component into an actual ActiveX DLL because the App.NonModalAllowed property always returns True when the program runs in the Visual Basic environment.
