Adding the ActiveX Controls to the Toolbox

To use the StyleVision ActiveX controls in an application developed with Visual Studio, the controls must first be added to the Visual Studio Toolbox, as follows:

 

1.On the Tools menu of Visual Studio, click Choose Toolbox Items.
2.On the COM Components tab, select the check boxes next to the StyleVisionControl, StyleVisionControl Document, and StyleVisionControl Placeholder.

 

In case the controls above are not available, follow the steps below:

 

1.On the COM Components tab, click Browse, and select the StyleVisionControl.ocx file from the StyleVision installation folder. Remember that the StyleVision Integration Package must be installed; otherwise, this file is not available, see Prerequisites.
2.If prompted to restart Visual Studio with elevated permissions, click Restart under different credentials.

If the steps above were successful, the StyleVision ActiveX controls become available in the Visual Studio Toolbox.

Note:For an application-level integration, only the StyleVisionControl ActiveX control is used (see Integration at Application Level). The StyleVisionControl Document and StyleVisionControl Placeholder controls are used for document-level integration (see Integration at Document Level).
