Connection Application-ActiveX

I tried to send an event from my Application to an ActiveX as follow, but the event newer touched my ActiveX - where can be the mistake?

void CSourceDoc::FireEventV(DISPID dispid, BYTE* pbParams,
      va_list argList)
{
      COleDispatchDriver driver;
      const CPtrArray* pConnections = m_xEventConnPt.GetConnections();
      ASSERT(pConnections != NULL);

      int i;
      int cConnections = pConnections->GetSize();
      LPDISPATCH pDispatch;
      for (i = 0; i < cConnections; i++)
      {
            pDispatch = (LPDISPATCH)(pConnections->GetAt(i));
            ASSERT(pDispatch != NULL);
            driver.AttachDispatch(pDispatch, FALSE);
            TRY
                  driver.InvokeHelperV(dispid, DISPATCH_METHOD, VT_EMPTY, NULL,pbParams, argList);
            END_TRY
            driver.DetachDispatch();
      }
}

Event is fired by the control to container, not vice versa. If you want to access control's property or method from container you can quere for an interface and then call its method.

But I need access to the same instance of the interface and when I quere for an interface I get a new instance.

galkinCommented:
I guess you're confused. When you create control with CoCreateInstance you get reference to IUnknown or ther interface you quere. OLe polymorphism states that you can quere any interface from any interface and get the same result. So you can quere the interface you are interested in and call its methods.

Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V

Task Manager for Hyper-V provides critical information that allows you to monitor Hyper-V performance by displaying real-time views of CPU and memory at the individual VM-level, so you can quickly identify which VMs are using host resources.

This might be OK when I just need a method, but when I want to connect to an other process, it doesn't works.

Your code seems correct, check if you did the connection in your ActiveX

If you want to call a method of custom interface of out of process server you need to implement marshaling to marshal call across process boundaries. If you call standard OLE inteface method i.e. IDispatch::Invoke, OLE already provides marshaling so you don't need to care.
