How to debug VB6 OCX under VB6
I know this has been asked before, but....
Using the VB6 IDE, how can I debug (ie, set breakpoints, etc) a VB6 OCX that's invoked by a VB6 exe?
I have the source for both the exe and the OCX. I would like to be able to debug by putting the EXE and OCX projects in the same "group".
But I've tried every "how to" tip I've found, and I can't get it to work. I set a breakpoint in the OCX project, and it's never hit. I suspect it's using the registered OCX, not the code in my OCX project. One of the posts I read mentioned to not point to the wrong OCX, but didn't explain how to do that, and I'm a little unclear about how to "direct" VB6 to "use the OCX project" during debug.
What's the complete list of steps necessary to get this to work?
Thanks in advance!
