Version Compatibility: Visual Basic 5

More information:
This control allows developers to use MDIChild Forms in ActiveX DLL's. This Visual Basic limitation is overcome by simply inserting the MDIActive Control on a form in the ActiveX DLL. This form will behave the same as a normal Visual Basic MDIChild Form. No code is required to activate the controls functionality. A very rich sample client is included.

Version 1.06 was released on November 21, 2000. This version includes a number of enhancements; in addition, the menus in the sample client are now in English (previously, they were in German).
