Help!!! Multi-Platform DLL Integration with Delphi
Posted on 1997-06-13
I work in a multi-platform development environment and NEED to be able to share functionality between:
Visual Basic 4.0/5.0
Visual FoxPro 5.0
Our development team has experts in each of these platforms. We want to be able to share particular functions developed in one platform with the ALL ot the other platforms. Through the use of DLLs, we want to be able call a function, pass it parameters, have it act upon the parameters, and return a result, and potentially modify the input parameters.
This process sounds VERY simple in theory (every development platform's manuals make it sound soooo easy), but, in fact, we have had "limited successes".
I know that everyone has their "Favorite" platform, but has anyone successfully demonstrated that what I describe is possible.
ANY SAMPLE CODE/DLLS THAT DEMONSTRATES ANY OF THE ABOVE PLATFORMS WORKING TOGETHER WOULD GREATLY BE APPRECIATED. Please include any instructions and specifics, such as compiler directive, additional support DLLS, yadayadaya...
I don't mean to be blunt, BUT!!! If you have not actually been successful with what I have described above, please don't speculate.
