ActiveX control help

I have some ActiveX controls, and are having a bit of trouble understanding how they work.

In the InitializeControl procedure, does this only run when a control is placed on a form, does it only run once for each control at design time?

What do I use to set values each time the control is created at runtime?

Can anyone help me with some of these answers?

Hi,

InitializeControl procedure of your activex control is where the eventsink etc. are initialized. Controlinitialize should not need to be called explicitly from the host application, in fact it would not be good practice to have this procedure exposed, since mainly this procedure is to initialize the objecttype of your activex control.

Initializecontrol will be called by the host application by itself. Generally there might be custom initialize methods to an activex control.

If i was wanting to set a value each time the control is viewed/used, where would i place it in the overall code for the control?

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:

That refers to my post.

"Accept answer from hashirviqas" is my recommendation to the moderators, and the action they will take if you choose not to make your own decision in regard to the outcome of this question.
