     VB has good event handling functions. The great WithEvents and VBControlExtender. The bad thing about them is, WithEvents can only be used for early binding, and the VBControlExtender is only for controls. So what to do in case you have an object like "InternetExplorer.Application" and want to catch its "Stop" event? Right, you guessed it: grapple with some nasty COM interfaces :) In this last part of my low level COM project I want to show you how to use IConnectionPoint to recieve events from objects. Oh, and you may see some equalities between this submission and the event collection by Edanmo. Edanmo has some functions in there I really was frightened to code. ;)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
