How to use ActiveX to control OO

Postby EwenF » Mon Sep 08, 2008 11:50 pm

I have been using ActiveX to control MS Word for generating reports (text and images) from my application written in C. Becaue MS keeps changing the interface to Word I hope that I can use OO instead but I have no idea how to do this. Does OO even support ActiveX control from a C program?
I found the file so_activex.dll but don't know how that can help me. Any help much appreciated. Regards, Ewen

You might also find it helpful to look around in the API Project pages, and even join the API mailing list.
