Implement Connection Point Wizard

 

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

This wizard implements a connection point for a COM object. A connectable object (that is, a source) can expose a connection point for its own interfaces or for any outgoing interface. Visual C++ and Windows both provide type libraries that have outgoing interfaces. Each outgoing interface can be implemented by a client on an object (that is, a sink).

For more information, see ATL Connection Points.
