Right-click an ActiveX container and select Insert ActiveX Object from the shortcut menu to display this dialog box.

Use this dialog box to create new ActiveX controls or documents or to insert new or existing ActiveX controls or documents.

This dialog box includes the following components:

  • Pull-down menu—Changes the objects displayed in the listbox in the dialog box. This menu includes the following options:
    • Create Control—Displays the controls available on the computer.
    • Create Document—Displays the documents available on the computer.
    • Create Object From File—Displays a Browse button that you use to navigate to a file from which to create an object to insert.
  • Validate Servers—Verifies the server and displays only the servers in the registry that exist on the computer. If you do not place a checkmark in this checkbox, LabVIEW does not verify the server and displays all servers in the registry in the listbox in the dialog box.
  • Link To File—Appears if you select Create Object From File from the top pull-down menu. Place a checkmark in this checkbox to update the document or control when you update the ActiveX object. If you do not place a checkmark in this checkbox, LabVIEW inserts a static version of the document or control.
