Most of you could already have this on your computer and not even know it. If you own any of the MS development products like visual studio, msvc++, vb, etc...just go to the start menu, click on run, then type depends and press the okay button.

I use this program at least 2-10 times a day, even more when I'm programming.

Very nice Torrey.. and MSon, ive found functions in dll's then used the dll call exist command in dbp to see if dbp can find it and yes it does so i assume u can call the functions if you know the amount and type of parameters the function call requires... not sure though.

I've been using it for years now - very useful Microsoft distribute it.

If you know what the parameters are, then yes.

By reference means you pass the address of a variable which is then used within a function, by value means you pass the complete data to the function. I believe DBPro uses the latter.

ok so a dll that requires the reference method will not work in dbp?
I think if u put the data into a memblock then use the memblock pointer command u can do it like that... says something about passing info to a dll direct from mem... ???

Andy,
Yep, that's how you do it.
By Ref Means that it wants the pointer to where the data is stored.
For a string, it wants the pointer to the byte data ( null termintated of course ) of the string, so a MemBlock Pointer would be ideal ( I've used this method for some API programming, except I used the Make Memory command ).

Jess.
