Use of Visual Basic's Dll

5 posts in this topic

Hello to all,

I'm use v3.1.0

Well, I have one function made in Visual Basic 6.0 that I'd like use in AutoIt. For this I make one Dll,but not work.

For those that know VB.

(ActiveX Dll Project) in a Class Module I have this code (Is just one example !):

Function msg(result$)

MsgBox result, vbCritical

End Function

And I compile this code as popup.dll

How Can I Call this dll in the AutoIt ??? This is possible with a dll made in VB ?

THX.

Rodrigo Martins.

DllCall("popup.dll", 'return type', "msg")

See AutoIt Help - DllCall for more info....

I can't make it work either.

My first thought was "you shouldn't make an ActiveX DLL", but I'm not really into this.

I tried different things, but AutoIt keeps saying it fails to call the function.

I thought he wants to call the function using AutoIt's DllCall..?

If you can get this linker working, it supposed to be able to turn the VB DLL into a "real" DLL. Not everyone I know has had success with this, but it may be worth a shot...

That's all I can think of....sorry.

Sorry forgot the link:
