    What is the best way to debug DLL's


    Hello everybody!
    I'm using VB6 and I'm just starting to develop an ActiveX DLL. Can anyone
    tell me what's the best way to debug them while programming.

    Thank you

    Create a project group with your DLL project and a test application.

    Create a group project by adding a client project consisting of a single Form (you can also use a
    module) while working in your ActiveX DLL project. This will be your "driver" for the ActiveX DLL
    project. Once you've added the client project, make sure it is selected in the Project Group window
    and open the References dialog and select the ActiveX DLL project reference. In addition, right
    click on the client project and select Set as Start Up so when you run the group application the
    client runs.

    You can then write code in your client to create instances of the ActiveX DLL, set breakpoints in
    client or ActiveX DLL project and then step through your code in debug.
