Use an ActiveX COM DLL within Delphi without .ocx?
Posted on 2004-11-01
I have a component which is described as an ActiveX COM DLL. I would like to use the component with Delphi 7 to develop applications.
When I have used ActiveX components in the past, there has been a .ocx ActiveX control file which I have used with Component > Import ActiveX > Add to be able to see the component in a palette and add it to my application.
There is no mention of a .ocx file with this release anywhere in the documentation, nor can I find on the www a .ocx file or any guidance which would enable me to get to work. Can someone please fill in the knowledge gap and let me know either how to use this .dll or why it isn't possible?
