Experts,

I am writing an ActiveX DLL and want to use Winsock Control in this DLL. How can I go about doing this. If not possible what do you suggest.
Using VB6.


Thanks

if i understand your query right, wouldn't that be as simple as adding the winsock control component in your activex dll project?

project -> components -> check the microsoft winsock control.

then use the component in code...

dim w as Winsock

In order you use the Winsock control in a DLL, you will have to add a form to the project and drop a winsock control onto it.  Then just call its methods as you would normaly.

I am using class module that replaces Winsock control. Check this:
