This procedure was posted by webmaster Guido on January 16, 2005. I followed the procedure described below but on step 4 I did not get the install radio button, only the create unit radio button that is checked. The only option I have is to click on finish. When I did the unit XXXX_TLB appears. Is there something else I have to do so that I will have the install radio button to appear so that I can import my activex control? Installing activex control in Delphi 5 works.
Importing an ActiveX control is pretty much the same for all versions of Delphi:
1. Select Component / Import ActiveX Control.
The new component is now available on the ActiveX component palette page, or on another palette page if you changed this in step 3. It's ready to be used in your applications.
1. The ActiveX component is linked into the executable file of your program that you uses this component. However, you MUST ALSO distribute the .OCX file with your application!
2. An ActiveX control needs to be registered on the computer before its first use. Thus, on every computer where you install an application that uses your ActiveX.
