Chapter 3. Specification

Many programming environments support the use of ActiveX objects. We have tested the Morovia Barcode ActiveX with Visual Basic, Visual C++, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Word, Excel, Access and IIS programs. The object can be used as a control embedded in a VB form or a dialog, or be used at background for image creation and printing purposes. The Barcode ActiveX object can also be inserted into Microsoft Office documents or other ActiveX-aware programs.
