Hi

Iam trying to create an ActiveX dll which should expose some static methods.
I used a Module to write some static methods, however after trying to use it in .NET the methods dont show.
Additionally it doesnt seem like i am allowed to make enums public ?

Just wonder why you won't do it in .NET since you use it in .NET.

Iam actually trying to move a lot of code from a VB6 Exe to an ActiveX Dll so that we can share the code with .NET.

However in the VB6 exe we have around 50 Modules with methods.

I've done this myself, and the intelisense in VB.NET doesn't work with my methods, but it does successfully call them.  The Enums do not carry over though, the only thing I could do was recreate them in the .NET portion and use them with the VB6 objects, mainly for clarity.
