Class Wizard shuffles dispids

I noticed Class Wizard shuffles dipids around when you add an automation property.  Once we release our product, I assume we can not let the dispids change for existing Methods/Properties.  Does this mean we have to stop using Class Wizard?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The ClassWizard generates those DISP_ macros that cause the framework to generate the DISPID. Instead, you can use those DISP_ macros that allow you to determine the DISPID. You may still use ClassWizard, just change the macros.

DISP_FUNCTION_ID(theClass, szExternalName, dispid, pfnMember, vtRetVal, vtsParams)
DISP_PROPERTY_ID(theClass, szExternalName, dispid, memberName, vtPropType)
DISP_PROPERTY_NOTIFY_ID(theClass, szExternalName, dispid, memberName, pfnAfterSet, vtPropType)
DISP_PROPERTY_EX_ID(theClass, szExternalName, dispid, pfnGet, pfnSet, vtPropType)
DISP_PROPERTY_PARAM_ID(theClass, szExternalName, dispid, pfnGet, pfnSet, vtPropType, vtsParams)
DISP_DEFVALUE_ID(theClass, dispid)
