    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(""))
