VB6 ActiveX Examples


I have downloaded your various vb6 examples and they all seem to have components that are missing…


To give one example: if you download the sample at, you will also need to download the Chilkat Mail ActiveX at (the Chilkat Mail ActiveX on the Chilkat downloads web page). This registers the ActiveX component. Then, in your VB6 project, make sure that a "Reference" has been added to the Chilkat Mail ActiveX. Do not add the "Component" to the VB6 project, but make sure that only a "Reference" is added. The "Reference" is used when you are creating the object dynamicially (i.e. set mailman = new ChilkatMailMan2). Adding the "Component" is for when you are going to drop
an instance of the component onto the VB6 form. You should never add both a "Reference" and "Component" to the same ActiveX.
