Firing ActiveX control Error event in ATL
Posted on 2002-06-12
ActiveX control can support a standard Error event. I'm writing an ActiveX control using ATL and want to fire this event to the container. In MFC I would use COleControl::FireError(). Is there something similar in ATL? Of course, I can retrieve IDispatch pointer that the container have passed to my control via IConnectionPoint::Advise and then call Invoke on this pointer, but this seems a lot of trouble with setting up parameters.
