Now, I'm writing an ActiveX Control on vb6, and successfully create a byte array of a string (several characters).

Now, I want to make a function call that is able pass the byte array, instead of the string out.

Therefore, how to write it on the ActiveX Control and the VB client that will call that particular function?

Thanks!

I've tried it, but still can't it to the client program. How should I write on the client program so as to get back the byte array or string array from the activex control like:

Private Sub CommandButton3_Click()
    Dim strArray(3) As String
   
    strArray = UserControl11.GetStringArray
   
    TextBox2.Text = strArray(0) & strArray(1) & strArray(2)
   
End Sub

But, I got error in assigning value to the String Array, strArray.

Thanks!

in activeX declare as

Function f() As String()
 Dim arString() As String

  'fill arString ........

  f = arString

End Function

if this still does not work you could use

Function f() As Variant

and leave everything else as is
