In InVue Developer, the existing ActiveX Controls (like SECValueDisplay Control) are not modifiable and have no Properties.

Issue

On an existing InVue installation, some additions to graphic screens are being done with ActiveX Controls.  The only one being used for these additions is 'SECValueDisplay Control'.  Each graphic already has several of these ActiveX controls.  After a copy and paste of an existing one, a right-click to go to Properties returns no pop-up box. 

There is no way to modify the copied (or existing) ActiveX controls.

When clicking on the wizards hat in the toolbar, the ActiveX Controls are missing from the list (see below).

Product Line

Environment

Cause

Support for the ActiveX Controls specific to the 10 starting with "SEC..." is disabled.

Resolution

Click the Install button and all ten ActiveX controls appear above in the "Installed ActiveX controls" area.
