Exposing Constituent Methods to UserControls

I have a usercontrol (VB6.0Ent) containing a graph and wish to let the user access the line method.  The ActiveX Control Interface Manager crashes when I run it for this control, so I wish to know how to do it manually.

I am sorry.  I was more interested in knowing whether the format could be kept the same.
i.e.   if my usercontrol instance is newGraph1 then

newgraph1.line (x1,y1) - (x2,y2)[,color],[BF]

No.
Also, you cannot do:
With Picture1
    .Line (x1,y1) - (x2,y2)
End With

I guess you can do it with having a public method DrawLine (say) which has the same parameters as Line and simply calls the Line method. Nothing else.

Then you can use
NewGraph1.DrawLine (x1,y1) - (x2,y2)[,color],[BF]

hope that helps.
