Dear Experts,
I am novice in c++. Ok. One of my Application will only support win32 standard DLL. I used to write functions in standard win32 DLLs for my need. One of my clients DLL has to call in my application. But it is written in VB 6.0 and it is an activeX DLL. How Can I call ActiveX DLL from my win32 standard DLL and Return the values to my main application.
Is it possible? If possible how to do that.
Please provide me some useful information links about the Standard and activeX DLLs.
I want to know the difference between Standard DLL and ActiveX DLL.
Thanks in Advance
James

calling an activeX dll is exactly like calling any other COM object from C++, because the ActiveX DLL is a COM object. do a searh on MSDN about:

Dr. GUI and COM Automation

there is a lot of useful info there about what you need
