.NET DLL to VB6 project?

Hi,

I've been askaing previously if a .NET windows control library (DLL) was
handled by VB6, the answer was and is still no.

But, I have a project library (an API) made in .NET, and my project is
in VB6. I really need a .NET component that could wrap my .NET project
library and make it portable to my VB6 project.

Is it possible to do that?

Thanks you very much.

You can make non-Windows Forms classes ready for use with VB6:

..NET Framework Developer's Guide -- Exposing .NET Framework Components to
COM

Visual Basic Language Concepts -- COM Interop
<URL:http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/vbcn7/html/vaconCOMInteroperability.asp>

Nevertheless, you cannot use .NET Windows Forms controls in VB6.
