From the Back Cover:

All you need to build powerful, sophisticated ActiveX controls right now!
Get a head start on programming with Visual Basic 5.
Right now, no Microsoft technology is more important than ActiveX, the successor to OLE. ActiveX is Microsoft's key building block for the Internet, Intranets and the Active Platform. And with the Visual Basic 5 Control Creation Edition, Microsoft has delivered everything you need to create powerful ActiveX controls—all for free. Everything, that is, except documentation.
That's where this book comes in. Written by a member of Microsoft's Visual Basic development team and an award-winning VB expert, it tells you everything Microsoft hasn't. This book not only lets any experienced programmer create full blown ActiveX controls.

You will start by learning the fundamentals of programming with the VB5 Control Creation (CCE), including VB5's increasingly sophisticated object-oriented techniques.

The first book in Prentice Hall PTR's ActiveX Series.
