ActiveX controls are third party standard reusable components, which you can use in any application that supports ActiveX technology. Visual LANSA provides full support of ActiveX.
There are ActiveX controls for instance for calendars, text formatting, graphing, spell checking, advanced grids or web browsers. You can also integrate many applications, for example the Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc.) into your Visual LANSA application using ActiveX technology. (For more information, see Integrating with ActiveX-Enabled Applications.)
LANSA provides support for the use of ActiveX controls and COM automation and the option of wrapping LANSA components as ActiveX components.
