Passing Variable ByRef
Posted on 2000-05-03
I have written a generic application to test MTS objects. The application has no pre-knowledge of the object's interface and as such does not know what the parameter types will be.
I have a variant array which holds all the values to be passed as parameters.
The problem is that the MTS object may be expecting a parameter as a String, Integer, Long, etc, so I can CStr, CInt, CLng the variant array's element to pass it to the function. But what if the function expects the parameter to be passed ByRef so it can modify the contents of the parameter. Eg, a function returns the records from an SQL call and has an "Error As String" parameter to indicate whether there was an error or not.
Any ideas on how to do this?
