The Designer client makes registered ActiveX components available in the IDE. First make sure that the AciveX component is registered in Windows. Have a look here to see how to do that: http://trixar.com/~makai/regx.htm When the component is registered it and its properties and methods should be available from the Designer client. Just to show you where this is, try this example: Create a blank database.
Create a form.
Create a button on the form.
Highlight the button.
In the "Run" drop-down select LotusScript.
To the left of the code-window you should have two tabs - labelled Objects and Reference.
From the drop down select OLE Classes.
(Wait for Notes to read from the Windows configuration.)
Now have a look at what's available to you. Those are all OLE and ActiveX servers and objects and you can now navigate their properties and methods. No Online-help available - sorry. If you are unsure of how to begin mixing LotusScript with the objects, methods and properties of your ActiveX component I would suggest that you take a look at the Sandbox in the Lotus Developer Domain Web site (http://www.lotus.com/ldd). Do a search on OLE and find some examples of integrating MS Word with Notes or something similar.
