1) In the project where your class is create a dummy form with an Inet ontrol on it.

2) In the class decs you need code like this:

Dim MyfrmDummy As FrmDummy
Dim WithEvents INET1 As INet

3) In the class initiaize you need code like this:

Set myfrmDummy = New frmDummy ' note the use of the New keyword
Set INET = frmDummy.INet1

The INet in your class will now receive all events etc.

When closing the class just:
Set INet = Nothing
Set MyFrmDummy = Nothing

Hope this helps:~)

If you don't need to know the interface (for WithEvents) and don't mind late-binding:

    Dim objInet As Object
    Set objInet = CreateObject("InetCtls.Inet.1")
    Call MsgBox(objInet.OpenURL("www.yahoo.com"))
