Using Microsoft Visual C++ :
File - New - MFC ActiveX ControlWizard - Fill in name of component - Next - Finish

Now you've created a framework for an ActiveX control.
In order to set properties :
View - Classwizard - Automation - Add property : fill in name and type of property (Get/Set property)

In order to create methods :
View - Classwizard - Automation - Add method : fill in name and returntype

Now you'll need to add the implementation of the method/property. You can use the ClassView to go to the method/property.

Hope this helps.

This depends on the client application (language).
You' ll need to register the control first.

Example in Visual C++ using MFC :
File - New - MFC AppWizard - Fill in name of component - Next - Dialog Based- Next - support Automation/ActiveX Controls - Finish

Add Control to application :
In DialogEditor : Project - Add to project - Components and controls - Registered ActiveX Controls - Browse to component and Insert (some classes need to be made).
Drag component on dialogbox and add membervariable for it in Classwizard. One can address methods and properties of the control.

One can follow simular operation in VB.
