Setting Properties of an ActiveX Control at Design Time

The methods, events, and properties associated with each ActiveX control differ. They're specific to that control and are determined by the control's author, and they are used to manipulate the control's appearance and behavior. Each control's methods, events, and properties are in a separate .ocx file.

If you don't modify a control's properties, it functions with its default appearance and behavior. Much of the richness of third-party controls comes from the capability to customize the controls by changing their properties at both design time and runtime. Some controls support data binding, which lets you store or display data in a control from an underlying field in a table. Furthermore, the capability to respond to an ActiveX control's events lets you respond to the user's interaction with the control, and being able to execute the control's methods lets you manipulate the control.
