Summary
  • Microsoft's Visual Basic Custom Control (VBX) is a distraction from OLE-based Custom Controls (OCX) and should not be considered a long-term strategy. VBX is actually just an extension of the Windows custom control, which developers rarely used. VBX is based on programmable software components while OLE is based on the compound document and the ability to contain and edit objects, without even knowing anything about them. OLE is a big, evolving specification that is designed to deal with the whole range of behavior of Windows objects and Microsoft has committed itself to using OLE as a way for Windows to eventually become a fully object-oriented operating system. VBX only has a 16-bit interface, making it not portable, and it does not handle linking or embedding. Microsoft is not developing any 32-bit VBXs and should work to move developers off of VBX and on to OLE-based solutions.
