Hosting .NET control in unmanaged code (designer)

Post by shoei » Tue, 01 Mar 2005 15:36:25


I have to develop a Form Designer, in un-managed code (C++), and I have some
custom .NET controls of my own. I want the user to be able to drag my custom
.NET controls from my toolbar on my form, just as one do in VS.NET. I want my
user to have a design-time facility, where she will be able to see how the
control look-like, and set different properties, as we do with any control in

Prior to this we had ActiveX controls, and for Inplace Activation, at design
time Ax Controls provide a bunch of interfaces to play with. Is there any such
thing in .NET?? How can I achieve the same ??

I'll be grateful for a reply.
