Finding a class in a dll
Posted on 1998-10-22
I'm doing a flowchart type program. Each shape is drawn in a class derived from a base class called CShape. I would like to put this derived classes in DLL's and load them at run time, getting the names of the dll's that contain shapes in the registry.
Here is my question: How do open the dll's (LoadLibary I know) retrive the Shape classes for use? Remember I do not know anything about the classes at compile/link time, only registry entries for the DLL file names.
PS: is COM a solution?
