Hi Traveller,


Is there any chance you want to explain what you want to achieve?

If you create new dll you still need to distribute our dll files with your application.

Hi Drazen,

- off course The VB DLL Should Use Your DLL's other wise how it can import their
methods,properties, and Events.
- we may add new methods and properties, Events ..
- we may Hide the License key Check in anew function to be called.
- If possible, off course by encapsulating your DLL's inside that new DLL is Great.
- and any possible other things may come in mind later.

Thanks and Regards,
Traveller

Hi Traveller,


OK I think you can create something like that.

Here is simple example that will show you how to call component About Method in another dll:
-------------------------------------
Option Explicit
Dim WithEvents sftp1 As wodSFTPCom

Public Sub dll_About()
Set sftp1 = New wodSFTPCom

sftp1.About
End Sub
-------------------------------------

inside this example I'm using wodSFTP ActiveX component.

Let us know how it goes.


Regards,
Drazen

Hi Drzen,

- Is your Code is a Class module ? or Else.

- If it is a dLL class where are the steps to create a DLL ?
- And where is our new methods and new Events Examples Which
become a Proxy to the Original Methods an Events to be Called
instead.

- I hope you understand, and give steps as well as New methods and
Events which Implement yours as Proxy.

Traveller

Traveller,


I add this this code inside Class Module. This is full code I use.

I already send you example how to receive value from component Method. Using About Method inside my last reply. For using Events I think you can declare them using:
-------------------------
Public Event Event_Name()
-------------------------

you can call this event inside your code using:
-------------------------
RaiseEvent Event_Name
-------------------------

can you maybe try that and let us know how it goes?

Hi Drazen,

For the previous Sample Whe I run I got the following Error:

user defined type not defined , for the Code below:

Dim WithEvents sftp1 As wodSFTPCom

I don't know Why ... This Happens ?, I have Windows 7, tells me
that the Component is not registered .. Why .. How to Solve this issue?

If we solve this issue first, I may be go forward to Add Events.

Traveller

Hi

- I already have done what you Said, But that happened.

- I think the Error is in the Implementation method of the class may be
In form Code Side.

- And I Noticed Also while I installed the Visual Studio 6, that messages
popping up telling me that this window version has incompatibilities issues
with the current software .. and I installed however.

I don't know if this is really an issue for our applications .. and if there
is a certain solution for it... any one who knows ... let me know what to do.

Hi.

VB6 works just nice in Win7/Win8. It does report compatibility issues, but works ok - we test components daily with it. So, no worris, you can continue with your work.
