This variable applies to those using ActiveX controls in their ACUCOBOL-GT programs. Use it if you want to allow events during the creation of an ActiveX control. By default, the runtime ignores events from all controls while it is creating an ActiveX control. If it did not, subsequent operations on the ActiveX control could fail.

If you are using a control that delivers significant information using events and you don't want to miss those events while you are creating a new control, set the CONTROL_CREATION_EVENTS variable to 1 (On, True, Yes). Alternatively, you could avoid creating an ActiveX control when you are expecting an event.

By default, this variable is set to 0 (Off, False, No).
