Use the ActiveX Property Browser to view and set all the properties associated with an ActiveX control or document in an ActiveX container.

The ActiveX Property Browser is an easy way to set the properties of an ActiveX object interactively, but you cannot use the browser to set properties programmatically, and you can use the ActiveX Property Browser only with ActiveX objects in a container. The ActiveX Property Browser is not available in run mode or while a VI runs.

Complete the following steps to use the ActiveX Property Browser to view and set ActiveX properties.

  1. Create a new control, create a new document, or insert an existing control or document in an ActiveX container.
  2. Right-click the object in the container and select Property Browser from the shortcut menu.
  3. Set the properties. Select the property you want to set in the left column of the Property Browser, and modify its value in the right column of the Property Browser. Notice that the help at the bottom of the Property Browser updates to describe the property you currently have selected. The changes take effect immediately.
  4. Close the Property Browser.
