Return Value

A string representing the full path to the selected ActiveX control.


Although this property is settable, you should not do so. It is settable only for internal purposes.


Loops through each project in your solution and lists the full path of each ActiveX (COM) control.

' Add a reference to Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine and have a 
' Visual C++ .NET project loaded before running this example. Also, you 
' should have at least one ActiveX (COM) reference in a project.
