I am using vbAdvance to create standard dlls in vb6 (http://www.vbadvance.com/index.html
) to use in DBP.
all of the numerics based function return what was expected, but for some reason any function in the dll that returns a string, DBP only gets the first character back, not the whole string. Anyone know why this would happen?
Also, what needs to be done to make a standard dll into a dbp plugin? Something about a string table or a resource file, or something? Go easy on me, I don't follow that c++ mumbo jumbo, I need the "for dummies" version
find the test dll attached, its called exports.dll. You can see if the same thing happens to you with the strings. Call the "GetNow" function, which should return your system's date and time (vbNow), I only get back the first character of the string. Also there is an "AddInt" function which adds 2 passed in integers (just testing)
