I want to write an ActiveX control which can call some self-defined subs or functions in vb,I tried, but when never I use the control in vb,it raise the error "automation error".

Here's my code:
//in vc++
TYPEDEF void (CALLBACK* MYPROC)(LPTSTR);

//one method of my control
BOOL DoSomething(long FuncAdd)
{
    ((MYPROC)FuncAdd)(_T("TestString"));
}

//in vb
//sub in a module
sub testsub(a as string)
   msgbox a
end sub

//in a form
sub Command1_Click()
    mycontrol.DoSomething AddressOf testsub
end sub

Could you give me some suggestions?

Of course this is an automation error since you don't have an automation interface in this VC++ program.

Automation interface is another name for the IDispatch COM interface and you must implement this interface if you want to use it from Visual Basic.

My guess here is that you have no idea what I'm talking about and don't understand how VB works with controls and COM objects.

This might be a good place to start:

inpras, there's no need to announce to the world that you're listening.  Just leave the "Post a comment" box blank, mark the "check here" box, and press the "Submit" button.  You'll be subscribed without firing off an unneeded notification to everyone else.

So you reject my answer without any comment.  I can only assume you didn't read it...
