I have two programs, the first one is an .exe, the second is a DLL.  The .exe calls a function inside the DLL that creates a form (or a panel) that is apart of the DLL. but is created on the main .exe form (in the case of a panel) or in the main window of the .exe (in the case of a form).  I need an example of the full function on the .exe side as well as the full DLL code.

Hi

I have answered a couple of questions regarding creating components inside DLLs, and there are a few things to watch out for.  If you provide your e-mail address I can mail you some samples from previous questions.  Alternatively you can look at some previous questions I have answered, particularly the one entitled "DESPERATE: Assigning Panel.Parent in DLL"

Also specify what version of Delphi you are using because there are differences between D2 & D3.

Regards,
JB

Hi

The answer involves using MyDllControl.ParentWindow := MyExeForm.Handle;
