I included a DAO data control as part of an OCX. I want to use this user control's data control as a datasource for a data bound grid, flex grid, etc, however, these bound controls do not recognize the user control as a datasource at design time. I have tried setting the data control a number of different ways, but with no luck. How do I pass a data control through an OCX so it is recognized as a datasource at design time?

u can set a public propertyGet inside the control which will return a string with the dataSource of the data control.
in the client where the control is hosted - create a database object and set its dataSource to the one u get calling that PropertyGet.
