What are ActiveX Controls?

ActiveX controls are component program objects developed by Microsoft and are used frequently in component-based software engineering. They are essentially plug-ins that are used to share information between applications. They also allow users to easily add functionality to the software they are using. For example, a user could use an ActiveX control to add a calendar to her user interface.

Any programming language that uses Microsoft's Component Object Model can create an ActiveX control. Because ActiveX controls are reusable components, they often make the programming process more efficient and can lead to higher quality software.

Many Microsoft Windows applications use ActiveX controls to build their feature-set and encapsulate their own functionality. Internet Explorer also allows the embedding of ActiveX controls in web pages.
