I create a new control activex (ocx) under VB6 (i active it thru a metod). I open a new project and workspace as fortran windows application;i select simple dialog based application and click on "this project will use activex control". In the dialog resources i add my activex control (already installed and registered). Then in source file aaa.f90 (aaa is my project), in the aaaApply subroutine i would like to insert the necessary instructions to activate (initialize, run, execute.....) my ocx control. I read "using dialogs" in programmer's guide but i can't understand which functions and in which way i have to use. Have you a "simple" example (not fbrowser or mmplayer) that show the simlpest way to use activex?
