How do I use an ActiveX? control from Visual Basic (VB)??
Many ActiveX controls are available for development packages such as Visual Basic. By default, Visual Basic has controls like command buttons, labels, and text boxes already available. If you select 'Components' from the Project menu from the Visual Basic environment, it will bring up a list of all of the registered ActiveX controls available. For example, if you were developing a data acquisition application using the Keithley DriverLINXÂ® controls, there would be a check box next to DriverLINX ActiveX Controls. If this box is checked, the two controls used by DriverLINX are added to your palette of controls. Once these are added, they can be placed on the form just as you would place a command button.
