Using Arrays with DCOM

How do I pass Arrays using DCOM in VB5?

How do I do 2-way communication so that the client is also a server and the server also a client???

To clarify I want the server to send an Array to the client and to receive an Array from the client

Last bit - I promise

What is the best way to pass a UDT using DCOM?  I know it doesn't support it - any tips?

On your server, declare

func(myarray() as integer, ....)


When you call on client

dim myarray(10) as integer
server.func(myarray(),...

where server is server object

I believe you should get the idea.

I don't quite understand your question.

You can build two class on your app.

One class is responsible for server and the other is for client.

Same idea

On your server, declare

func(myarray() as integer, returnarray () as integer)


When you call on client

dim myarray(10) as integer
server.func(myarray(),returnarray () as integer)

where server is server object

I believe you should get the idea.

As long as you use byref (by default) then it whould be ok

The easy way is used array of string.

You can strip the value out from the other size.
