Hi,

I don't know how to start a DDE client application. I have some strange DDE server software called Sagian MDS, which I guess nobody will know. So it would be nice to have a simple example of how to write a DDE client controlling a maybe better known DDE server application. Please copy the source code into your answer or comment. I'm using Visual C++ 5.0.

Thanks in advance, re

You can find a sample "DDEML: Demonstrates the DDE Manager Library" in Win32 SDK samples with Visual C++. It shows how to write a client and a server.

I'm not sure I really understand the examples given.  I tried to initiate a DDE transaction between the client example program and the software I'm trying to communicate with, but it didn't work.  The documentation given is quite sparse.  Any suggestions as to where I could find further information would be helpful.

Try looking in MSDN CDs to find more information about DDE.
