What Is A Real World Use Of Creating An Event In a Custom Class?

Hi,

I've been coding in VBA with Excel's built-in events for the Workbook and Worksheet and their usefulness is very obvious.

However, with custom classes in VBA you can also create your own events -- and raise them -- to other objects that are listening for those events.

What's unclear to me is a solid example of when this would be useful.

For example, what is a case where I would have created a custom class that I really needed to use custom events?

If someone could provide a simple real world scenario that would provide more clarity to me.

Thanks,

Matthew
