ActiveX control of a C++ class

Hi All,
      I wanted to make a ActiveX control which has all the methods similar to the methods defined in the class shown below including the operator== overloading and copy contructor. Actually, later on I need all these methods in a VBA.

Please guide me how I should proceed to do the same?
Please reply as quick as possible, if you can.
 
Thanks in advance,

With Regards,
Pawan

//Test class
#include <iostream>
#include <string>
using namespace std;

class Test
{
private:
    unsigned int total;
public:
    Test();
    ~Test();
    Test(const Test& testObj);
    void addValue(unsigned int value);
    unsigned int getValue();
    bool operator== (const Test& testObj);
};

Test::Test()
{
     total = 0;
}

Test::~Test()
{
}

Test::Test(const Test& testObj)
{
    this->total = testObj.total;
}

void Test::addValue(unsigned int value)
{
    total = total + value;
}

unsigned int Test::getValue()
{
    return total;
}

bool Test::operator==(const Test& testObj)
{
    if (this->total == testObj.total)
        return true;
    else
        return false;
}

Use MFC ActiveX control Wizard for creating the project .
If you don't want any windows,select windowless activation option (refer Advanced tab in the MFC ActiveX control wizard while creating the project)

Once you create the project you can find the Interfaces.

Note : MFCActiveX = Project Name

Right click on the interface "DMFCActiveX" and Add a method or property.
1.Inside your method you can write the code and call this method where you will be using the activex control
  - In the Add Method window select custom for creating your own methods and you can type the name of the function
2. You can add properites and call the setters and getters in the contained where this activex control wil be used.
In your case, you can properties for 'total' attribute of your class
Plz refer to this for more on set and get property
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Cplusplus/Q_20892274.html

Right click on the interface "DMFCActiveXEvents" and add events, if required
