I'm creating a runtime object into a
library (dll).
This object has an "xxx" type event :
i want to assign this event to a function contained into the library.
How can I define this new function to be binded to the "xxx" event?
I don't have classes into this library (dll).

You can get the address of each function within your DLL by using GetProcAddress, (and LoadLibrary if needed).

Once you have this address, you can typecast it to the type of event you are wanting to call. You may have to place this into a temporary event variable before assigning this event to the event property.

Hope this helps :)

I can't use GetProcAddress because the function itself is defined into my library.
I can get the address of my function with the @operator, but i can't typecast it to my type event (a procedure of object).

Thanks for your help.

I can't use the Getprocaddress into my Library: the runtime object is created into the dll.

Also, i can't typecast my function to the type event, it doesn't work.

Sorry, you can't do this. The reason is because you can only export functions/propcedures from a DLL, not events. You will need to create a normal event handler in your application which then calls the appropriate procedure in the DLL.

Cheers,

Raymond.
