ActiveX control properties saving/

Hi, I have an activeX control, and it has a few different properties that I would like to set and save at design time, i.e. when the controls are placed on the Outlook form they are being used in.

At present when I set the controls property in design time i outlook, then publish the form the property is not saved with the form, can anyone help me here?

Do i have to set the controls properties through code each time I open the form, ie in the showform code?

hum
dunno, maybe the controls are initialized differently in your library
the properties should have the values as set in the designer
what controls are you talkin about ?
you could use RxLib and its TFormStorage
you simply select the compoenents and their properties that you would like saved
so whenever you change any property it's saved to a file or in the registry (depends on your setting)
... actually the saving is done on form termination
and the loading on its creation
you can also manually save/load the settings with SaveFormPlacement and RestoreFormPlacement :)

I have a ActiveX control that I am making, the properties are added to the control by me, do the controls properties get saved by the container app or do they need to be saved by code in the contaner app

I'm not really that great with ActiveX controls.

All i want to do is to create an activeX control that has three properties.

The control is to be used in a custom Outlook Form.

One property is bound to a property on the Outlook form.

Two properties are set at design time when i drop the control onto the Outlook form, and then right click the control and set the properties dialog and set the property values. Then I save the form for use in Outlook.

The bound property works correctly, but the other two properties do not save there values as set in the form.

OK i think I may have got somewhere with it now, I set the following tags in the type library editor for the properties.

Source
Bindable
Request Edit
Default Collection Element

Question, do i need all of these.

Also, now if i have more than one of these controls on the form, they both have the same settings and I can't make it so they have different settings?

you asking about RxFormStorage ? then the answer is 'you can' :)
every instance of a component has it's own settings

and I don't know that much about ActiveX controls :)
