Testing and Debugging Your ActiveX Control

You can test and debug your ActiveX Control project from the design-time environment in one of two ways:

  • Test your ActiveX control inside an existing container application, such as Internet Explorer.

  • Create a Standard EXE test project in the same program group as your ActiveX control and test your ActiveX control in the test project.

Notice that both methods require another program in order to test your ActiveX control. You cannot test an ActiveX control project completely on its own because, of course, ActiveX controls have no function outside of a container provided by another application.

We discuss both these methods in the following sections.

  1. Testing Your ActiveX Control With Existing Container Applications

  2. Testing and Debugging Your ActiveX Control in a Test Project

  3. What to Look for When Testing Your ActiveX Control
