How do I create an managed OCX?

Posted on 2006-04-28

I have created and exposed an Windows control, but it will only compile as .dll

I can reference it in MS Office, but I need to create it as OCX, so I can use it as an FORMS control within Outlook Custom forms.

Any Tips?

TIA ;)

    One thing I know is that you won't be able to produce OCX under .NET everything is a dll or exe.

    I think the dll represent what used to be an OCX.  I can create a user control, reference the dll and it will appear on the toolbox so I can drag it onto my forms but that is VS.NET I am not familiar with how the Office designer works, perhaps you could ask a question in the Office TA
