TOCX! An ActiveX Extension to Tcl/tk


Introduction

        The abundance of OCX (and ActiveX controls) available in the PC 32-bit Windows environment today can now be used by a Tcl/Tk programmer. TOCX allows Tcl/Tk users to use existing OCX or ActiveX controls in a widget-like way. All the properties, methods and events exposed by the controls are available for the Tcl/tk programmer to use and manipulate. Controls can also be positioned and sized on any part of the window.

         The introduction of TOCX will bring Tcl/tk in par with other very successful component object based languages like Visual Basic, Delphi.
