I have never created a DLL before.  I am using MSVC++ 6.0.  I would like to create a new DLL that uses MFC.  What is the best way to do this.  I have tried creating a Win32 DDL and it is not obvious to me how I enable MFC support.

Goto File > New > Projects > Select MFC AppWizard (dll).
And then give the project a name and click OK.
You MFC DLL base is ready.

If you just want to enable MFC in your Win32 DLL.
Then goto Project > Settings > General > I Microsoft Foundation Classes combo select
Use MFC in a Static Libray, or
Use MFC in a Shared Libray.

Your project is now MFC compatible.

Ok, that was easy enough.  Maybe its not fair to ask another question, but how do I add a class/function and make it available to my application?

Put the declaration of the function or class in a header file.
Put the definition of the function or class in a source file.

In your application you need to include the header file.
#include "mydll.h"

In addition you will get a .lib file along with the .dll file.
In your linked settings add this .lib file to avoid linking error.

thats it.
good luck !
