How to Create an Active Form in Delphi 2007

I spent a couple of hours frustrating myself today trying to remember how to create an active form using Delphi 2007.  I knew that I had done it before, but do you think I could remember how?  No way! So to avoid future frustrations I decided to write it down.

Before you can create an active form, you first need to create a new project by selection File | New | Other | Activex | Activex Library.  Once that step is done, you can create the active form by selecting File | New | Other | Activex | Active Form.  Leaving out the first step will cause you to slowly go crazy while you search all of the Delphi project item categories for the active form wizard without finding it.
