ActiveX Button Control
Published by Softel vdm, Inc. - 08/24/2015

Does the standard button control leave you wanting more? We have designed our button control from scratch, with all the features that developers want from a button control. No, ours doesn't do fancy shapes, which only end up confusing end-users. Instead, we focus on giving developers the tools to write solid applications.  Our button control continues where the regular button control leaves off and gives you all of the following features:
