ActiveX Controls

ActiveX controls are executable components that can be embedded into Web pages to give them enhanced capabilities. Over the past few years they have become more and more integrated into the Windows 98 and Internet Explorer software and are therefore less in the limelight. However, interest in this technology still remains high—particularly for individuals and companies using Microsoft FrontPage or Microsoft Visual InterDev for Web development and design.

In some respects, ActiveX components and Java applets are very similar. Both are embedded executable components that provide capabilities above and beyond what can be accomplished by using straight HTML and scripting. Both allow for the creation of highly interactive Web pages.
