#include "Exdisp.h" // IWebBrowser2 Interface
#include "stdlib.h" // x
#include "mshtml.h" // MSHTML

IWebBrowser2* pTopWebBrowser) {
 
//

int code = 0;
HRESULT hr = 0;
UINT i = 0;
 
// Validate WebBrowser Argument (!NULL, top win, !busy, etc.)
if (pTopWebBrowser != NULL) {
 
// Get pTopWebBrowser's Document IDispatch Interface
code = 1;
IDispatch* pTopDocument;
hr = pTopWebBrowser->get_Document(&pTopDocument);
 
if (pTopDocument != NULL) {
 
// Get pTopDocument's Container OLE Interface
code = 2;
IOleContainer* pContainer;
hr = pTopDocument->QueryInterface(IID_IOleContainer, (void**)&pContainer);
pTopDocument->Release();
 
if (SUCCEEDED(hr)) {
 
// Get Container's Embeddings Enumerator
code = 3;
IEnumUnknown* pEnumerator;
hr = pContainer->EnumObjects(OLECONTF_EMBEDDINGS, &pEnumerator);
pContainer->Release();

you need to declear the functions/methods you made in cpp in a c# class
and then you can use this c# class (wrapper for cpp) as any normal c# class.

see this example:

System.Long should correspond to HRESULT, I am however not quite certain regarding the IWebBrowser2 interface however this thread might be helpful http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=2463777&SiteID=1
