Adding properties to an activeX

I have an ActiveX control that I am putting together in Visual C++ for use by a VB application.  I added GetMessage1 and SetMessage1 properties to the control and made the type variant (because I didn't see String as an option).  Now I need a way to read/write string values to those properties but I can't seem to figure out how to access them.  Do I need to connect them to a variable somehow?  I also need to do the same thing with proerties of type "BOOL".  Any help will be appreciated.

I have already added and used methods and events to the control that work fine.  I am just hung up on this and have limited experience with C++.

The wizard you use will do all of this work for you.  There should have been a CString option, or you could use a BSTR.

Right click on your interface, and select Add Property.  In the Variable Name box, add the name of the variable you want it to connect to [continues]
