Calling function in MFC ActiveX from C code

I am new to C++ so forgive me if this is a simple question.

I have a MFC ActiveX made by the Control Wizard, I have included some C code into the project.

I want to call a function in the MFC class from my C code, but the function name is CX254Ctrl::NcbCompletion which C code will not recognise.

I am able to call function in the C code from C++ by using extern "C".

Put a static (extern "C") wrapper around your CX254Ctrl::NcbCompletion.

If NcbCompletion is a static function:

extern "C"
{
foo NcbCompletion(...)
{
 return CX254Ctrl::NcbCompletion(...);
}
}

If not then, inside global NcbCompletion you have to determine object, and call

yourObject.NcbCompletion(...);

The main problem is you are trying to call C++ member functions from C code.  The following link provides some insight into this:

I think the comment from tdudroff is pointing in the right direction, but since I am a novice the artical  is a bit to complex for me.

In the X254Ctrl.cpp file I have

void CX254Ctrl::NcbCompletion()
{
     FireNcbComplete();

     //CX254Ctrl::NcbCom();
}

In the X254Ctrl.h file I have

public:
     void NcbIfm();
     void NcbCompletion();
     enum {
     //{{AFX_DISP_ID(CX254Ctrl)
     dispidTrace = 1L,
     dispidRemoteNua = 2L,
     dispidNcbReturn = 3L,
     dispidNcbCommand = 4L,
     dispidNcbCommandReturn = 5L,
     dispidClearCall = 6L,
     dispidEntry = 7L,
     dispidMakeCall = 8L,
     dispidProcessNcbCompletion = 9L,
     eventidNcbComplete = 1L,
     //}}AFX_DISP_ID
     };
and am trying to call CX254Ctrl::NcbCompletion() from some C code in the same workspace.
