Exporting VC++ classes for use with VB
I just started off in this kind of stuff, so I'm practically nowhere yet. I have several questions in mind, e.g.:
a)if I need to export an object with events, does it necessarily have to be a control? Can't "plain" classes have events in C++?
b)does my DLL have to be an automation server in order for it to export my classes?
c)I'm very confused by the "MFC" stuff. Do I need it? I mean, in Visual Basic it was very easy to make a DLL that exposed classes (regular classes, not control classes). That is, no "visual" part. In VC++ I can't seem to get rid of MFC "base classes", so I end up with a control.
Sorry for/if mixing up things, I shall soon split my problem into more clear parts, but at the moment I need to start somewhere.
