I have an ActiveX Control that uses the COM to communicate with a metal nameplate printer. I've writen code for a form that pulls data in to populate the plate fields. When I bring in the ActiveX Control it does not work. As I understand one must create a wrapper for the old ActiveX control to work. Before I start looking for how toos.. is it possible to use an ActiveX Control that sends data to a device attached to the serial COM port? If so, what do I need to do for information on how to?
