(Removed) Free ActiveX Controls for Programmers
« on: March 19, 2009, 02:35:08 PM »
I've used these ActiveX Controls in a lot of my own programs and they are available for download with documentation.  They can be installed in IDEs that support ActiveX such as Visual Studio, Delphi etc..
They are "invisible at runtime" ActiveX Controls.  It amounts to a Delphi component that can be installed in any IDE that supports ActiveX, and dropped on a program form like a Delphi or VS control.

They are more designed to work with compiled code although there doesn't seem to be any problem with C# and event functioning.  With AutoIt3 and Python events don't fire as expected probably due to the line by line execution of script.

One is a pretty Windows Message Dialog type.
The other is a "single instance" type with command tail transfer.

I first coded them in 2001 so I think I have most of the bugs out by now. :)

They are free for use at your own risk.

I just uploaded a COM container for Delphi 5 TIniFile component. Assigning a name to the FileName property creates or opens an existing .ini file. The COM container just reflects all methods into the contained TIniFile component.  Can be used by Windows compiled or scripting languages that can create objects via a Type Library.  The download has both .hlp and HtmlHelp.  The IniFileLibVB.chm has examples of creating DIniFile (the CoClass) objects using Python, VB and VC++ (using VC++ smart pointers in the VC++ example.)

You are most welcome.  I hope those who use them have a smile rather than a bald patch from ripping their hair out. I think I got all the bugs anyway. :)

I've removed the ActiveX Page along with GradDlg and TellTail ActiveX Controls.  I just don't want to see them anymore. 10+ years is enough! :)

Plus, at least for instance control, I've found ways of doing it without flicker.
Time for old code to die. :)
