Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment error when calling Matlab Com in Visual Basic

I have a very simple mablab com (dll) function produced by matlab "comtool". The matlab .m file is named as  sumtwo.m and looks like:

function c = sumtwo(a,b)
   c= a+b;

I used Matlab comtool to produce a com dll for it, and named it as sumtwolib.dll and assigned a classname of sumtwoclass to it. After I built it, I can see this dll in the visual basic object viewer. I want to call it in Visual basic and see whether it will work or not. I just used a button in my user form, and when I click that button, I want to see the result. But when I run it, I got an error of "run time error 450. Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment error". Below is the visual basic code I wrote.

Private Sub cmdSum_Click()
 Dim sum As Integer
 Dim obj_dll
 Set obj_dll = CreateObject("sumtwolib.sumtwoclass")
 sum = obj_dll.sumtwo(1, 2)
 MsgBox sum
End Sub

Could someone kindly help me. Dll and Com are new for me.

Thanks in advance

I have figured out this problem by myself. Where Matlab's Dll function is a little different from others. I did like this:

......
obj_dll.sumtwo(1, sum, 1.0, 2.0)
......

where 1 means only 1 output parameter, sum is the output parameter, 1.0 and 2.0 are two input parameters, respectively. It also shown that this didn't work on integer input parameter. I don't know why, so I just changed them to double.

Thanks Richie_Simonetti for your kind reply. The return value of sumtwo function is the sum of the two input parameters. I have figured out how to do it. See my previous comment.
