I have tried it and a sample code could look like this:

  o ole2.obj_type
  a ole2.list_type;
  res INTEGER;

  ole2.add_arg(a, usr);
  ole2.add_arg(a, pwd);
  ole2.add_arg(a, tns);

  o := ole2.create_obj('AXobject.main');   res := ole2.invoke_num(o, 'logon', a);   ole2.destroy_arglist(a);
END; I did not include an activex container on the form and did not import the methods.
You create the object with "ole2.create_obj" and call the methods with "ole2.invoke_num/char/obj". The arguments are places in the arglist.
