I have a property Text(0) in one of my VC DLLs. When I try to assign the value to Text(0) property in VB-6 using CallByName method it gives me an error
'Object doesn't support this property or method'

Code is as follows.

dim po as PORESOURCELib.beResource

CallByName po, sPropname$, VbLet, aTstData(pst)

Where po is the object, sPropname$ contains the property name Text(0) and aTstData(pst) contains the value which I want to assign to that property.

Please tell me the reason why it's failing?
Does VB-6 support such property assignment?

The name of the property is "text" not text(0). The property text is most likely a safearray and you have to pass the entire array to C.
If text is a parametered property than you have to pass it as an argument
CallByName po, sPropname$, VbLet, 0, aTstData(pst)
