The ActiveX controls included with InBatch are frequently embeded in Wonderware InTouch HMI windows to provide a programming or user interface.  These ActiveX controls expose their properties, methods, and events when their respective graphic is dropped on a window in InTouch.  The controls are installed with InBatch, but need to be enabled from InTouch.  Enable the controls from the WindowMaker menu by selecting Special | Configure | Wizard/ActiveX Installation... 


Select one or more controls from the Available ActiveX controls list at the bottom and then click the Install button.  They will be moved to the Installed ActiveX controls list on top.  You will then have access to these controls from the Wizard Hat icon in WindowMaker.  The controls are added graphically to one or more window(s) in InTouch.
