how to access COM components events in c#

I am writing a class library that uses some third party COM components as well as serial comms

I need to know how to access the events associated with these controls - for example:

I have successfully set up a serial comms object using by referencing Microsoft’s comm control 6 in my .net project i.e

 MSCommLib.MSComm port = new MSCommLib.MSComm();

I can then successfully open close the port and set all the relevant properties

eg

port.CommPort = 1;
port.PortOpen = true;

etc..

My problem is how do I access the port.OnComm() event. I have exactly the same problem with some third party controls that work with a specific piece of hardware  I can set the properties but I'm not sure how to get at the events.

Any help would be apreciated.


Regards

If you start typing the following, Visual Studio will start prompting you through the rest:

port.OnComm += new MSCommLib.DMSCommEvents_OnCommEventHandler(port_OnComm);

private void port_OnComm()
{

}

Thanks for that, but there’s one more thing. The above codes works but the new Port_OnComm routine is created as a method for my class. I really need it to create an event for my class so that in the program that uses the library i can use the following code example

MyClass.port_OnComm += new EventHandler(MyClass_port_OnComm)


Currently this fails with the following error

Cannot assign to port.OnComm' because it is a 'method group'      

Thanks
