The most comprehensive guide to developing ActiveX controls: by expert developers, for experienced developers.
-- Covers both client-side and server-side issues associated with writing ActiveX controls.
-- Strong coverage of Visual Basic 5 Control Creation Edition, Microsoft's freely-available development environment for creating ActiveX controls.
-- CD-ROM includes ActiveX Developer's Kit and all controls covered in the book.
-- Covers advanced features, including Microsoft's Authenticode, ActiveX conferencing, ODBC, Java and the Component Object Model (COM).
ActiveX Developer's Resource brings together all the critical information experienced developers need to successfully create ActiveX controls. It first lays the groundwork for ActiveX development by walking through the basics of OLE technology. Next, developers learn how to install the ActiveX Developer's Kit -- and what pitfalls to avoid. The book introduces Jscript and VBScript, showing how to create simple controls using these technologies. Next, it shows developers how to begin scripting more complex ActiveX controls. With the basics in hand, learn to create controls with Internet data download features. Next, move on to Microsoft's cutting edge technologies, including Authenticode security features, Internet conferencing using T.120 and T.128 standards; and both client-side and server-side database interface issues. ActiveX Developer's Resource also includes comprehensive information on making ActiveX and Java work together. This is an invaluable resource for programmers who want to write their own ActiveX controls -- especially those familiar with Visual C++, Visual Basic 4, and/or Web and HTML technologies.
