Symbol Factory ActiveX
Using with InTouch



Using Symbol Factory ActiveX With Wonderware InTouch

This step by step How To note takes you from the basics of using the Symbol Factory ActiveX with Wonderware InTouch 7.1 through 9.5. Although you can use this product with Wonderware InTouch 10.0, and existing applications will come forward fine, Wonderware discourages the use of ActiveX controls in new InTouch applications built from the ground up. InTouch 10 users should check out Symbol Factory ArchestrA.

Known limitations of the InTouch ActiveX Container

  • InTouch at this time does not support transparency on Windowless ActiveX controls at this time, thus if you select the BackStyle property and attempt to set it to Transparent, you will see a dialog telling you that the container does not support transparency. 
  • The Symbol Factory ActiveX, starting with Build 136 or higher, automatically matches itself to the background color of your application window/form when the control is inserted into your application.
