How print a ticket using dll and ActiveX

Hello friends,

Look I am creating a system from a website to print (from a printer POS) purchase a ticket.
I'm using PHP, I know with PHP I can not do anything since it runs on the local server, then I resort to using ActiveX and using a dll (I have no idea even of how this works) which comes in the installation files or create a dll that connects with the port and then perform the action of sending to print the ticket.
In theory this should work, but I have no idea how make it works,
as summoned by ActiveX dll?
I have to create dll to only connect to port?
is the printer dll?
are both dlls (the printer's and create a port to connect to)?

Thank you very much for your help, Greetings!

What are you asking exactly?

If you are asking how to write an ActiveX control, you are better off finding a Microsoft forum and asking there.

I agree. Here's the link:
