More information

To set up the advisory connection, you get the server's IConnectionPointContainer and call FindConnectionPoint() with the IID of the event interface. This gives you an IConnectionPoint interface. Then call Advise() with an instance of your event interface. The server will call back through this interface when these events occur.
