Overview

Thanks to Microsoft's ActiveX technology, you can now leverage your hard-won Visual Basic expertise to create robust Web sites rich in interactivity, multimedia content, and other functionality. ActiveX Controls with Visual Basic 5.0 provides all the in-depth, authoritative information, techniques, and code you need to build effective Web-based Internet and intranet applications using ActiveX controls.

In ActiveX Controls with Visual Basic 5.0, author and Visual Basic expert Jose Mojica reveals how to

  • Write thorough specifications for your ActiveX control projects
  • Create properties, methods, events, and property pages
  • Implement simple, complex, text, and binary persistence
  • Draw controls from scratch (and draw from a hidden buffer to optimize painting)
  • Use the ambient properties of a development environment
  • Take advantage of all of Visual Basic 5's new debugging features
  • Make all kinds of controls, including owner-drawn, subclassed, invisible, Internet, grouped, data-aware, internationalized, and demo-version controls
  • Override standard OLE implementations of certain OLE interfaces
  • Call upon every Visual Basic 5 feature, including enumerated types, the implements command, the AddressOf function, native compilation, UserDocuments, and asynchronous loads
  • Distribute controls - by disk or over the Internet or an intranet
  • Add security to your controls, including making unregistered controls automatically enter demo mode
  • Polish off your controls by creating a help file, adding context-sensitive help and descriptions, and drawing the icon for your control

Plus, ActiveX Controls with Visual Basic 5.0 comes complete with a bonus CD-ROM containing Microsoft's Visual Basic 5.0 Control Creation Edition and ActiveX Control Pad, Sax Software's Sax Setup Wizard Jr., ABRISOFT's VB5AXDB, and Winware's Visual Help Pro - along with all the source code for each ActiveX control presented in the book.
