.NET Class to Com Object Conversion


First and most important I've wrote a .net class and I'm need to know how I can convert this to a com object that can be used in vb6.

Secondly as a bonus, This is for a project I'm working on in which I would like to draw the control on a form.  Also, this is probably a different question but is there a way to have multiple forms in the class.  I'm wanting a 2nd form to appear when a user clicks on a button in the com object that I'll draw on the vb6 form.  If so will this form appear inside the space that I've drawn the control or is it possible to have it create a form that isn't bound to that location and can be moved freely.

This is a C# article, but the concepts are very similar, and provides a good set of steps.

Thanks Bob I found this article too in a past EE question.  What about the multiple forms in a class?  Is that possible or just one user control per class?

Anything in the DLL should be accessible as long as the ComVisible attribute is true (which it is by default), and has a valid GUID assigned.
