U need to HOST the control in your own COM container. You need to implement various interfaces.

The container is the relevant one IMO

imti_lakAuthor Commented:
thanks for the sample code, But From which class the ccontainer and nauido class are subclassed.

And will this code work without the support of mfc libraries? and are all the interfaces
implemented in this code?


Please also show me the header files for both the classes?

Use ATL or WTL.

Ok I'll pass. It _IS_ possible but complex. Try ATL (the above code even uses ATL too)

What is your reason to avoid MFC?  All computers have the MFC DLLs so there is no overhead problem.
