To use an ActiveX control you've got some work set out for you. As far as I know, no examples exist, and documentation in any case is sparse or extremely technical. You need to provide some interfaces for a visual control to hook itself into, things with bad scary names like IClientSite and IPropertyBag and worse. If you are thinking of using X visual controls to make asm easier, forget it. They work to a much different model the standard windows controls, and the client site has to do lots of work to keep them happy. If you want to use a non visual control, that's not very difficult, numerous examples are around, mine are at Controls are much better served if you go the other way, write the control in asm and let VB or VC act as its container.
