Referencing an MSComm Control from a Class

I have a class (CDevice) that should reference an MSComm Control (MSComm1) on a Form (Form1). The class has a public property (Device). In the Class it is declared as:

  Private mvarDevice As MSComm

The class has the public property Set/Get methods for mvarDevice.

In Form1, I have the declaration:

  Private WithEvents ODevice As CDevice.

In the Form_Load event, I have the statement:

  Set ODevice = New CDevice

In CDevice Class Initialize event, I have the statement:

  Set mvarDevice = Form1.MSComm1

My problem is I get an error in the above statement. VB reports an error indicating the events for MSComm1 do not match... something. I'll post the actual error message.

What could be the problem. At the moment I am not using the mvarDevice reference to reference MSComm1 on Form1 because of this error. I am using Form1.MSComm1... in the class to reference the MSComm Control.

I have just created the following example to test this and it works fine:

Class module:

Private WithEvents mvarDevice As MSCommLib.MSComm

Public Event Test()

Public Property Set Device(ByRef DVC As MSCommLib.MSComm)
    Set mvarDevice = DVC
End Property

Private Sub Class_Initialize()
    Set Device = Form1.MSComm1
End Sub


Form Code:
Private WithEvents ODevice As CDevice
Private Sub Form_Load()
    Set ODevice = New CDevice
'    Set ODevice.Device = MSComm1
End Sub

Actually it is better to use the set odevice line in the form load event as shown here than in the class_initialise as this class could in theory be used with a project that does not have a "form1" form.
