The ActiveX object has got either the invisible form or it is a visible component with the graphic user interface (graphic control element). The invisible objects can be used in the PROMOTIC by means of the PmActiveX
PROMOTIC object, while the visible ActiveX control elements can be used in graphic images in the PROMOTIC by means of the PmiAx
graphic item. To use the ActiveX object on the computer in programs, it must be correctly registered in the operating system.
