Gain access to ActiveX from its property page

Hi,

I have an ActiveX control with several properties.

I made a property page for it to set the properties.
But instead of using common way for setting properties (DDX and DDP) one control by properties.
I display a grid in which some properties appears odered as I want and display as I want.

Now using this method, I need, when the data of the grid are validated, to use directly the control and set its properties directly.

So the question is from the property page, how can I access to its owner control.

I have looked in MSDN and find something (function GetControlClass() ) but was unable to make it work.
I see the turnaround done in the page of GetControlClass and don't succeed to make it work.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance!
