Not applicable.

To generate an ActiveX wrapper for an ActiveX control, first create or obtain an instance of the AxImporter class. The AxImporter constructor accepts an AxImporter.Options object, which sets options for the importer, such as the filename for the wrapper .dll to generate and the output directory to generate the wrapper to. To generate the ActiveX wrapper, call the appropriate Generate method. To generate from a file, call GenerateFromFile. To generate from a type library, call GenerateFromTypeLibrary. The string that is returned will consist of an assembly qualified name (example: "Namespace.Type,Assembly") for the type an ActiveX wrapper was generated for. The wrapper for the ActiveX control will be generated in the .dll file specified in the outputName property of the AxImporter.Options passed to the AxImporter constructor. The type can be loaded or queried using System.Reflection and treated as an ordinary managed type. You can also call the GetOcx method of the type to retrieve a COM interface to the object, if the object supports this.
