Exposing Winsock_DataArrival Event (or any other event from a .dll) ) in a custom ActveX .dll

I am writing an ActiveX dll, which encapsulates the Winsock Component to perform SMTP commands via port 25 I have written this using the winsock control inside a standard .exe with no problems at all. However in a .dll I can only use the CreateObject(ProgID) in my code
(as there is no form for the control to sit on).  Again no problem, I can access the methods and set properties etc...  My code relies on the Winsock_DataArrival event to execute certain rules.  How can I expose the events of an object instance which has been created programmatically?  I have a feeling that the key lies somewhere in either WithEvents or RaiseEvents (or both).
Ideally to keep things as simple as possible, I do not want to use the Winsock API!

Any help with the above would be of great help.

Many thanks in advance,

Dave

Use WithEvents and Raise event from your DLL

In your main code write handlers for these events.

There's loads of help available in MSDN.

My apologies for not getting back to you sooner.  I did indeed use WithEvents as was my hunch, and after a bit of input from MSDN and some experimenting I got it working.

I totally forgot to update the 'experts' question.

davee_jay,
Here's a tip for the future, in case you continue to use this site:  Most experts would rather not receive a C on their grading record.  I'm sure you meant well, but please review the EE grading guidelines:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/cmtyQuestAnswer.jsp#3  Thanks!

Ah, any chance that grading can be ammended once it has been submitted, because after looking at the guidelines, it looks more relevant to give an A)?
