Description:
ActiveX Practical Demo Continues!

PRESENTER: John Hickey, Andy Wilton, Mike Hanson

Last week, we showed how to use an ActiveX control in a Clarion application, and built an app to help us test out ActiveX Controls.

This week, we move ever onward!
  • Add to the time-date picker class some methods for handling the date. Add a methods to convert from the the time/date returned by the ocx to clarion time/date and viceversa
  • Add a method to the class to watch for OCX event
  • Create a control template so the time date control can be easily added to any Clarion window procedure
  • How to look at examples in other languages and "Clarionize" it
  • Talk about deployment of ActiveX controls
  • Also may be able to get into a little more advanced ActiveX topics, for example, some ActiveX controls will return an array of values!
