Hello everybody,

  I'm inside a UserControl. I want to pass this UserControl object from my UserControl to a
function located outside this UserControl object. How can I get it so I can later access some
UserControl's functions?

  Thanks in advance

Have you tried:

     Private Sub UserControl_SomeEvent()

           Call ExternalRoutine(Me)

     End Sub

     Public Sub ExternalRoutine(ByRef ctl As UserControl)

           'YOUR CODE

     End Sub

Failing that, you could always try using:

     Public myUserControl As UserControl

in your Declarations section...
