Thread: ActiveX EXE

    ActiveX EXE


    I have a class named Messenger. Other projects can create instances of Messenger
    then use it's public methods like init(), display() and send(). This works
    fine.

    However, I want Messenger to be able to execute on it's own. I have made
    the project an ActiveX EXE. Everything still works when another project
    instanciates Messenger. How do I define the order of methods that I want
    to run if Messenger is executed by itself?

    Hi
    Since its an ActiveX exe what u can do is add one module to your Exe add
    the Public Sub Main() routine in it & in the routine check whether your Exe
    is run standalone or instanciated by a client by using the following code:
    *
    Public Sub Main()
    If app.startmode = vbStandAlone Then
    'standalone app
    End If
    End Sub
    *
    You'll also have to set the Project Properties to make Sub Main your starting
    point.
