In a lot of cases, you can get around using additional VBXs. In this case, however, you will have to use an additional control. The reason is this: Windows uses a thing called a callback to make events and messages work. However, to make things easier, VB has hidden that functionality. In some cases like this one, you have to have a control like MessageBlaster or SpyWorks to allow your program to respond correctly to these events.
