Information about the .ctx (ctx) file type

This is one of six possibilities that we have on file for the .ctx file extension, follow this link to view all six possibilities.

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .ctx (ctx) file type.

Visual Basic Control file. .ctx files are binary files. They contain binary information (such as bitmaps, if any) that accompany a Visual Basic component.

There will be a corresponding .ctl file which contains the visual basic source code for the component. When the .ctx and .ctl files are compiled they are used to create a single .ocx file.

.ctx files were used by Visual Basic up to (and including) Visual Basic 6.

Where this is available we would like to include file format information on .ctx files, as well as information on how to view or open files of type .ctx. If you know of any information which we have missed then please let us know.
