C dlls & VB

A C dll has to be called from a VB application. The dll expects a certain structure which has an array of doubles as one of it's members. We create an instance of the structure in VB.
Eg: Let someStruct be the structure
redim someStructure.arrDoubles( 10 )
//then we fill up this structure
someStructure.arrDoubles( 0 ) = 123.123
someStructure.arrDoubles( 1 ) = 0.99
.
.
someStructure.arrDoubles( 9 ) = 1111

When we pass this structure to the dll, the dll is unable to read the elements of this double array.

Is there a special way of passing structures with arrays as members to C dlls. We are using VB6.

Hi Shayad,

Well found a good article at the Microsoft site

http://premium.microsoft.com/msdn/library/officedev/excel/d12/safa4.htm

It's about passing any type of data form VB to an DLL, they explain there exactly how to pass any kind of array form VB to an DLL.

Hope this helps
