In my program I have to use a DLL (abc.dll) that contains the following procedure
DWORD linkreceive(HANDLE link, DWORD *command, char *arg)

I declared this function in VB6 as
Declare Function Receive lib "abc.dll" alias "linkreceive"
(link as long, ????????, arg as string) as long

What type declaration should be placed on the question marks. So which type uses VB6 for a DWORD*  ? and should it be ByVal or ByRef ?
