Naeem,

The essential difference between an ActiveX control and a COM component is that the ActiveX control has it's own user interface. It's a much better idea (from my point of view as target developer and possible end user at least) to write COM components without user interface, and then call the methods from whatever controls the client application supports. This does mean you can't use data binding and other features of VFP controls though.
