About the ActiveX Controls

The ActiveX interface is a set of nine custom controls that enable development environments that support ActiveX to easily access Btrieve data. The interface includes a data source control and eight bound data controls.

The PSQL data source control provides the connection point between your application and a Btrieve data file. In addition to acting as a data source for other data-aware controls, the data control also exposes properties, methods, and events you can use to access data from code in your application-opening, closing, and creating files; and retrieving, updating and deleting records.

The PSQL bound controls, which must be attached to the data source control, include data-aware text box, list box, combo box, check box and option button controls. The list and combo box controls operate either as field-bound controls or as multi-column record list controls.

Command button and horizontal and vertical scroll bar controls provide indexed record navigation.

In Microsoft Visual Basic, the PSQL data source control can also act as a record source for data-aware Visual Basic controls, and for third-party data-aware ActiveX controls.

For information on new and changed ActiveX functionality in PSQL v12, see What Is New in PSQL.
