Hi all.

I've got a quick question about building user objects as COM components.
I've never actually done this before but something occured to me the other
day.

If I create a standard, visual user object based on a datawindow control and
then build that into a COM component wouldn't theory state that I could use
the UO's functionality (and therefore a DW Control) in any programming
language that supported COM?

TIA,
Erin

PS: This would be done in PB6.5.1.

Yes, but keep in mind that PB's COM objects are still PB objects with a COM
wrapper so you'd still need the PB runtime around.
