FIX: Changes in the Properties Window of an ActiveX Control Are Not Persisted

This article was previously published under Q329076
This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
SYMPTOMS
If you insert a Microsoft ActiveX control in a Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) Dialog project, and then you change the properties of the ActiveX control by using the control's Properties window, the changes are not saved when you close the project.
CAUSE
This problem occurs because the container where you inserted the ActiveX control does not verify the OnChanged event when you change the properties of the control.

Note This suggests that the ActiveX control calls the BoundsPropertyRequestEdit method before changing a property and then calls the BoundsPropertyChanged method after changing it. For the following resolution to work, the control must call these methods (if it is not already doing so).
RESOLUTION
