Calling a .NET Object

A COM client can create an instance of a public class in an assembly and call the public members of the class. The common language runtime marshals the calls to and from the managed object.

ILoanPtr pILoan(__uuidof(Loan));

The ILoan interface exposes several methods and properties, including the GetFirstPmtDistribution method.

pILoan->GetFirstPmtDistribution(payment, &Balance, &Principal, &Interest,
