DllCall and C++ string object

4 posts in this topic

Hello!

I have got a dll and some of the parameters have to be string objects by reference, not character arrays. Is there a way to handle the dll file in AutoIt?

Thanks for any answer.

You could always create a DLL with 2 funtions: CreateStringObjectFromWstr and DestroyStringObject

You think I should create my own additional DLL to get a pointer to a string object and delete it after using?

Sounds good, I'll try, but if someone could do this for me, it would be very nice :) , because MinGW makes very big files with 'string.h' included.
