I wanna know how to make one, it's 200 points cos I'm damn lazy.

I create an ActiveX DLL in vb5, yes ?

Then what ? Do you have example code that I can put in this dll, after I run it through regserv how do I use it ?

I'm looking for a mini guide to creating the worlds simplest asp com object, just something that you can send a string to and the object will add another string to it.

Cheers

Neil

Create an ActiveX DLL Project by using File New and selecting the ActiveX DLL project type.  

By default, when you do this it will create Class Module Named CLASS1.

Insert this code into CLASS1

Private Const gstrSOMESTRING As String = "ADD THIS TO IT..."
Public Function AddAString(vstrFirstString As Variant) As Variant
     AddAString = vstrFirstString & gstrSOMESTRING
End Function

Compile the Project and Register on your Server that has IIS.

Once you have this done, we will move on to calling from ASP

try these code in your class .

dim msgin as string
public sub setstring(string1 as variant)
   msgin = CStr(string1)
end sub

public sub Addstring()
    msgin = msgin & "Hello World"
end sub

public function GetString()
   GetString = msgin
end function

Next compile these codes and build the dll .

Under your asp code try this
<%
   Set test = Server.CreateObject(ProjectName.ClassName)
   test.setstring "tttt"
   test.Addstring
   results = test.GetString
%>
