problem with firing event

problem with firing event

problem with firing event

hi i have a big problem! i hava an ATL Class wich fires an event on init. I chatch it with javascript in the ie(thats ok).
If i want to fire the event from another c++ class it doesn't work. In this c++ class i have a pointer of the ATL Class with which i fire the event. (the c++ class calls a help-function of the ATL-Event using the pointer, which fires the ATL-Event(the same as in the beginning) but nothing happens).

To check if the help-function is called from the c++ class, a property of the ATL-Class is changed within the help-function. The property is changed but the event isn't fired.

When i call the same help-function manualy from the InternetExplorer the event is fired and the IE handles it.

CPP Class:

class thePhone
  CmyPhone *cgi;

  void setCGI(LPVOID p);
  void testFunc();


void thePhone::SetCGI(LPVOID p)
    this->cgi = (CmyPhone*) p;

void thePhone::testFunc(){


STDMETHODIMP CmyPhone::init(void)
    this->tp.setCGI((LPVOID) this);
    this->fval = 11;
    this->tp.testFunc();        //also works!!!!
      return S_OK;

STDMETHODIMP CmyPhone::helpFunction(void)
        //works only if fired manualy from Internetexplorer

        //is always changed
    this->fval = this->fval + 22;

    return S_OK;

Please help me i don't know what to do!! MFG Tos
