ACTIVE-X Control Type

To use an ActiveX control in your COBOL program, we recommend that you define a new control type with properties, methods and events using the SPECIAL-NAMES CLASS clause. You can do this with the ActiveX definitions file generator, AXDEFGEN.

ACUCOBOL-GT defines a control type named "ACTIVE-X" that it uses internally whenever you CREATE, MODIFY, INQUIRE, or DESTROY an ActiveX control. For a complete description of the ACTIVE-X control type, refer to ACUCOBOL-GT User Interface Programming > Control Type Reference > ActiveX .
