digitalmars.D - Creating ActiveX in D

Hi,
Sergey G. ask (by accident ;) ) about : How to create an ActiveX control 
in D.
Now, I am curious : Is it possible to create an ActiveX Control In D ?

Something along :
class Component : IDispatch
{
}

instead of :

class Component : IUnknown
{
}

and if so, how to build an AX control in D, guess as DLL + D runtime ???

Thank's for enlighten me.

Thanks Frank, guess the DWT OLE package is more OLE consumer orientated. probably I am wrong...will have a look. ( maybe, just read the msg from John C. .. not really encouraging ) , nevertheless :) thanks again, björn

Just implementing IDispatch doesn't make a COM component an ActiveX Control. IDispatch is used as a calling interface for older scripting languages like VB6. ActiveX controls have to implement a whole bunch of interfaces. They are a right arse ache to do and I can highly recommend staying clear of it.
