You should expose them through the COM interface (in the idl/odl file if you wrote it in VC).
if the class you created is a visual one (a control in the VB language) then you should draw it on a form, and when you'll double-click it, you'll get to the events list in the code module.
If it is a non-visual class (see rdoResultset and rdoConnection) you should Dim it with the WithEvents Keyword in the code module of a class (or form class), and when you'll see the name of the variable in the left combo of the code module, the events will appear on the right.
a procedure will be created in the code, and this is the callback function.
I would also like you to email me very much, I have a question from the other side of the server I think you have an answer to.
my email is ziv@pidcgroup.com
 thanks.
