Provides an implementation of the OLE DB IConnectionPoint interface for use by applications upgraded from Visual Basic 6.0.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.Data (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.Data.dll)

[ObsoleteAttribute("Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.* classes are obsolete and supported within 32 bit processes only.")]
public interface IConnectionPoint

The IConnectionPoint type exposes the following members.

Public methodAdviseEstablishes an advisory connection between the connection point and the caller's sink object.
Public methodEnumConnectionsCreates an enumerator object for iteration through the connections that exist to this connection point.
Public methodGetConnectionInterfaceReturns the IID of the outgoing interface managed by this connection point.
Public methodGetConnectionPointContainerRetrieves the IConnectionPointContainer interface pointer to the connectable object that conceptually owns this connection point.
Public methodUnadviseCloses an advisory connection that was previously established through the Advise method.

For new development, see IConnectionPoint.


Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic 2010. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.
