How do I trigger the event in a COM Client using VC++?

We have an Event (Fire->MyEvent) created in an ATL COM server. How do I trigger the event in a COM Client using VC++? I was hoping you could provide me with an example and some guidance. Thank you.

I'm confused as to what you are asking. You fire events in your COM servers based on input from the client. You simply have to call something on the server that will in turn fire the event. I suggest you read pages 19-23 of Sell's and Rector's excellent ATL Internals.
