Creating an ActiveX in Delphi

Hi Experts,

After doing some research I have come to the conclusion that I need to create an activeX control to do what I need.

I need to have a link on a webpage which when clicked saves an .ini file to a specified location.

I really don't have a clue on where to start with this.

Does anyone know or have some code on how to do this please?

Thanks

start your delphi then select file -> close all
next do to file -> new -> other select ActiveX and choos ActiveX Library
new empty DLL will be created then go again to file -> new -> other -> activeX
and choose AutomationObject or Active form or com Object...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

after you choose ActiveX Library
then go again to menu File -> Add -> Other -> ActiveX you'll have some options there includnig Active Form
