The SocketTools ActiveX Edition consists of ActiveX components for use with development tools such as Visual Basic, Visual C++ and Delphi. A total of twenty controls provide client interfaces for the major application protocols such as the File Transfer Protocol, Hypertext Transfer Protocol, Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, Domain Name Service and Telnet. The components can be used with any development tool that supports COM and the ActiveX control specification. All of the controls share many common attributes. The network controls support both synchronous (blocking) and asynchronous modes of operation, and also include the ability to log the Windows Sockets function calls for debugging purposes. All of the controls are thread-safe and can be used in multithreaded containers, such as Internet Explorer. With the exception of the visually oriented controls (the browser, image viewer and terminal emulation controls), they can also be used as simple Automation objects, without requiring that they be placed on a form or inside another container. With illustrative examples, comprehensive online help, a tutorial to help developers get started, a complete Userâ€™s Guide and Technical Reference in PDF format for easy printing, the SocketTools ActiveX Edition provides the greatest functionality and broadest range of features available for building Internet and intranet applications. The controls are completely royalty free and include a 30-day money-back guarantee.
