I don't know that there's any support for ActiveX controls in Lazarus or LCL per se, since these are cross-platform.

FPC does have an ActiveX unit and this is used in the win32 widgetset's win32wsdialogs.pp unit if you want to investigate how it's using it.

You can also use COM Automation servers and clients on Windows with FPC. See this link:

Remember that all of this is Windows-only. Nothing related to ActiveX or COM will be available on Linux or OS X.

Thanks.
