ActiveX controls in .NET, hosted in IE

For my application an activeX refers to "program displayed within Internet

After looking over the docs for VB.NET it looks impossible.


In Visual Basic 6.0, UserControl projects (also known as ActiveX Control
projects) were used to create ActiveX controls. After they were compiled,
UserControls could be hosted in any container that supported ActiveX,
including Visual Basic 6.0 forms and Internet Explorer.

In Visual Basic .NET, Windows Control Library projects are used to create
controls that can be hosted in Windows Forms applications. When a Visual
Basic 6.0 UserControl project is upgraded to Visual Basic .NET, it is
upgraded to a Windows Control Library; the resulting control can no longer
be hosted in Internet Explorer.


Key line: "the resulting control can no longer be hosted in Internet

Has .NET really done away with activeX controls (within IE), and WHY?

Is there any other way to imbed a program within a web page in VB.NET?

Hi. I've never created an ActiveX control before, so I know little about what it is capable of and what its limitations are. My problem is this: I have to create a way to send multiple documents from the web server to a printer on the user's network. The way it works today the user has to manually download each document and send it to his printer, but now they want me to create an automated process. Will I be able to download documents...

Hi What would the equivalent to an ActiveX be in VB.Net? I need an application that will run as a trusted site and be imbedded in a browser but have access to a locally installed programs Com objects. It also need to be complied so I can't use VB or JS script. Also is there an upgrade for code written in VB6 for a an OCX / ActiveX to what ever has superseded it or is it start again time!

I am struggle to find a way to develop ActiveX components, I seem to remember doing them in VS 6.0 but can't seem to find a way in .Net, I have done the Windows Forms Controls inbedded in a web page but cannot get the same sort of functionality as a ActiveX. What do I need to use to develop one ?

hI have a series of ActiveX controls written in VB6 that I want to now use in VB.NET. In the VB6 world I loaded these controls at runtime as needed. This worked great as they all implemented a common interface. I am having some issues now when I try to do the same things in VB.NET. The controls will load, however, they fail on the following line of code If TypeOf UserControl.Extender.Parent Is IControlInterface Then

I just downloaded a activex control that was written in C# and tried to view it on my PDA's Internet Explorer. At my regular PC it displayed just fine, but nothing showed up on the pda.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
