Handling VB6 Events in C#


I have exactly same problem as the below. Does anyone know a solution,



I have a VB6 ActiveX EXE app that generates events that I would like
to handle in a C# application. The events in the VB app are defined

Public Event SometingHappene d(what As String)
and raised like so:
Public Sub EventNotificati on(ByVal what As String)
RaiseEvent SometingHappene d(what)
End Sub
in the C# app I create the VB ActiveX object and add the C#
oClass = new Project1.Class1 Class();
oClass.Someting Happened += new

Project1.__Clas s1_SometingHapp enedEventHandle r(class_event_h andler);
and the eventhandler looks like:
private void class_event_han dler(ref string what)
MessageBox.Show (what);
Everything builds OK in VS and when I run it and generate the event in
the VB ActiveX EXE nothing happens in the C# app. The event doesn't
seem to trigger the C# eventhandler. Any suggestions? or good examples
of trying to handle this situation?

This is fine but I am at a loss as to how to expose the toolbar's various events...

VB's more declarative nature of handling events is golden.

Hi all, Where can I get some insight on using the __hook, __unhook, event_source and event_receiver for specifically COM events. The documentation given in MSDN is very minimal. I have the following scenario Server (COM event source) is written in VC++ 6.0 using ATL (event interfaces can be either dispinterface / IDispatch based) Client (COM event receiver) is written in VC++ 2003 using attributed programming and unified event handling

I have a piece of VB code (.NET 1.1 - VB 2003) that loads data from a database through a timer. So the timer is setup and from it I call the procedure that loads the latest records from the database. This works fine. However, I attempt to notify the user when data accesses occur. The way I attempt to accomplish this is by changing the background color of a label on the form the user is looking at. I use red for when the database is...

I need to handle UI events in a worker thread instead of the primary UI thread. In C#, is the normal UI event handling behavior to run in a context thread on the thread pool or are events always invoked on the primary UI thread? Thanks, Jordan

I'm interested in an idiom for handling errors in functions without using traditional nested ifs, because I think that can be very awkward and difficult to maintain, when the number of error checks gets about 3 or so. It also gets very awkward in nested loops, where you want to check for normal loop processing in the loop condition, not errors. Yes, you could put some generic exit flag in the loop condition, but when you're simply done if...
