Exporting class object in MFC

I'm creating my first DLL and I'm a bit confused and having trouble finding the answer in the DevStudio documentation. (I'm using DevStudio 5.0 on windows NT)

I have a set of high level access functions which refer to a class CMyClass. What I'd like is for the user to be able to get a pointer to a CMyClass object so that they can pass that pointer into the high level access functions but not allow the users of the dll get at the member functions or content of the class object. I have found the documentation on exporting the class but it specically mentions encluding the full class definition for the user of the dll. I know I'm missing something. I'd appreciate any help.

You cannot do that. The C++ language reference says:
"Note that explicit use of the dllimport and dllexport attributes on members of an exportable class is prohibited."

And there is no other easy way of exportin classes from DLLs. Of course you should consider putting all the members and member functions in the protected section of your class.
