VB5 handling user messages from other apps
Posted on 1997-11-20
I have a visual c++(5.0) app that needs to send a message to a visual basic(5.0) app for processing. Is it possible for me to direct the message to the correct vb function through a message-map? Is DDE an option? I have been told that DDE is being avoided and OLE is the standard. I am trying to avoid making the c++ project an OLE object. What is the recommended solution for interprocess communication from a c++ app to a vb app without registering the object?
Getting the WM_COPYDATA message to work would be sufficient.
