I 've created a form(form1) and placed it in an ActiveX dll project.

in Class1 I've delcared the form as a property of the class:
private F as form1

in Class1_Initialize I create the instance..

set F = new form1

Now the question is, when the user interacts with the form, how can write changes the user made on the form back to the other properties of Class1. (for examble a button on the form changes the value of Class1.SomeProperty

In form1, declare a variable of type Class1 (say it's moClass), and make a property Set procedure in form1 something like this:

Property Set Class (oClass as Class1)
   Set moClass = oClass
End Property

In Class1_Initialize, after your 'Set F' statement, put in another statement:

Set F.Class = me

Then, whenever anything in form1 changes, you can access and set variables or properties of moClass.
