I have a composite comtrol i build in atl.
i added to the dialog an activex from the registered activex's.
the following has been added to the my h file :
#import "C:\Program Files\CtrlView\CtrlView.ocx" raw_interfaces_only, raw_native_types, no_namespace, named_guids

If you are using MFC through class wizard you can create the object of the control.

THe #import wil cause a couple of new files to be created in your output directory.  For intance, you might find CtrlVie.tlh and CtrlView.tli

In these file, you will find definitions of the the objects in a C++-compatible form.  For instance, Here is a sequence that creates an ADO opject:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <afxdisp.h>
#import "c:\program files\common files\system\ado\msado15.dll" rename ("EOF","adoEOF") no_namespace

#define CREATEiNSTANCE(sp,riid) { HRESULT _hr =sp .CreateInstance( __uuidof( riid ) ); \
                                  if (FAILED(_hr)) _com_issue_error(_hr); }

struct InitOle {
    InitOle()  { ::CoInitialize(NULL); }
    ~InitOle() { ::CoUninitialize();   }
} _init_InitOle_;       // Global Instance to force load/unload of OLE

void main(){
    _RecordsetPtr   spRS;
    _ConnectionPtr  spCON;
    try{
        CREATEiNSTANCE(spCON,Connection);
        spCON->ConnectionString = L"driver={sql server};SERVER=(local);Database=pubs;UID=sa; PWD=;";
        // spCON->ConnectionString =L"DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=authors.MDB;DefaultDir=C:\\test;";
             
        spCON->Open( "", "", "", -1 );

... etc.

After compiling the #import line once, I look into the Debug directory and I find the two files named msado15.th?  In .\Debug\msado15.tlh, i find a definition of _RecordsetPtr and _ConnectionPtr and I can use them as shown above.
