    Learning to program ActiveX controls (VB6)

    I was just wondering if anyone had any good resources for programming ActiveX controls?

    Ideally, internet tutorials would be good for immediate use, but any book tips would be also great too, as I can make a start with internet tutorials while any books are in the post.
    I've created dll's before, where I pass criteria to it and pass a single variable back, but so far I have not created a .ocx control. I have made a start with the actual control but i'm having trouble finding out about how to create properties that can be set when calling/using the control.

    Any tips/advice/links would be much appreciated.

    Regards,

    I can't think of a link offhand, but an activex control can be thought of as a form. If you want it to have special properties and methods, you code those into its class module, just as you would do with a form. Does that help?
