This site contains useful information about ActiveX Controls and provides
a number of the controls written by Moon Valley Software that are free
to download and use.
ActiveX Controls (formerly known as OLE controls or OCX controls) are
components that can be inserted into an application to reuse packaged
functionality someone else programmed. Using controls helps programmers
develop applications without having to "reinvent the wheel"
for many common actions.

Writing an ActiveX Control
Creating an ActiveX Control is easy using Visual Studio. Whether you
are using Visual Basic, C++, or another language, you should be able to
start a new ActiveX project using the New Project wizard. After you have
created your project, create public functions and methods to perform the
desired tasks. Whatever you make public will be available to other programs.
