Can I call a delphi DLL with autoit?

Recommended Posts

nullschritt

Hello to this point, I have only coded in autoit, php, javascript, and some visual basic/c#. Currently I have an encryption function I developed, written in autoit (basically a proof of concept, I knew it would be slower than I needed it to be), however I have started working on some programs in autoit which incorporate the algorithm.

My question is if I learn delphi, can I use delphi dlls, via dllcall in autoit to access the delphi function which should be quite a bit faster than autoit?

If I am correct by making a dll with my functions I should be able to call them from any other language with a call to the dll, including autoit, am I correct in this assumption? Or are there limitations I should be aware of?

Thanks ahead of time for reading my post!

Just remember to use cdecl or stdcall calling convention at compile time for x86. Delphi used to use something else, depending on version.
