Registering Control Panel Items

Control Panel items must be registered in order to appear in the Control Panel window. If the Control Panel item is implemented as part of a .exe file then it is registered as a command object. Registration differs if the item is implemented as a .dll file that exports the CPlApplet function.

Specific requirements are discussed in these topics:
