Creating the Project

Visual Basic User's Guide > Creating a Simple Word Processor

Assuming that you have already run the Text Control installation program and started Visual Basic, the next step is to create a project for the text processor. To do this, begin by selecting the New Project command from the file menu. Then use the Project / Components... command to include the file tx4ole17.ocx into the new project. You will see four additional icons appear at the bottom of the toolbox, representing the Text Control and its Status Bar, Button Bar and Ruler Bar:

The Text Control Icon
