No - DBPro produces executable files only.

Any language that can produce standard (not COM or .NET) DLLs and attach string resources to them.

Well, the languages most used are Delphi of course , PureBASIC if you want to stay with a BASIC language and C++ (which is what I use for my many plug-ins).

Despite what I said in my previous post, you can also use .NET languages too, but you'll need to convert the .NET DLL to a standard DLL - it will still need the .NET runtime to execute though.

There's no trial, but go to the product page for it and there's a sample that you can download and look at.

You can use Visual C++ , C# and VB, but as IanM said,

Well you would need to actually write code in it, and create a string table Once you have done that it will work.

Well, every command in DBPro is a function in an external dll. The DBPro compiler converts source code into some machine code containing function calls to the different dlls. It knows which command goes to each .dll because each .dll has a string table (basically a collection of strings) which map the command name to a function in the dll.

DBPro looks for user dlls in the DBP Root->Compiler->plugins-user directory, so that is where you should put your finished plugin.

There is a lot of information needed to create a dll, and this can be found in the DBPro help files under 'Technical Documents'.
