a message box popped up in my VB Express and said it had a new 'wrapper' for activeX that would provide more features and would I like to switch to it.... I said yes.... now none of my 'ax' controls i.e. acrobat reader, MS webBrowser, Visio Viewer, are not refenced and they are gone from my reference list in the solution exployer... I stripped the 'ax' perfixes from my code but now i cannot use 'location, size,etc' properties.
what the heck happened.... is there a 'new wrapper' and why didn't it wrap my AXs?? how can I wrap them manually??
nevermind.... maybe it was too much turkey! i am guessing the new wrapper is because I just switched from Express Beta to the latest version. I am calling all of the controls at runtime... so I had to drag the activeXs onto my form again so it would create the 'ax' prefixed references.... then I could delete them from my form.
lots of 'thanks' to Microsoft for 'giving' us this wonderful interface!
