Problem with COM - System.InvalidCastException

P: n/a

I've been searching all over the internet, and I didn't find solution of my
problem :( I hope someone can help me here...

The problem is:

Im writing a library in C# (COM Library). This library will be used by an
application, which is wrote in VB6. I will call it "MainApp".

In my library I'm reading property from object which is shared from MainApp.

My class looks like:


public class MainClass : MainApp.ExternalClass
void InitClass(MainApp.Interface myIntrf)
MainApp.SomeObj s = myIntrf.MyProperty;

MainApp.ExternalClass - abstract class (I'm implementing its methods).

When I'm buliding the project, VS says:
"Property, indexer, or event 'MyProperty' is not supported by the language;
try directly calling accessor methods 'MainApp.get_MyProperty()' or
'MainApp.set_MyProperty(ref MainApp.SomeObj)''".

So i changed my code and I'm invoking get_MyPropert() method. Buuuut, when I
want to access some fields in MainApp.SomeObj an exception is thrown:
"System.InvalidCastException: QueryInterface for interface
'MainApp._SomeObj' failed."

What should I do, so my returing (from accessor method) object
('MainApp._SomeObj') is valid ??

I'll be appreciative for any advise...
