I wish to create a DLL, using VB6, or VB7(.net) to be useable as in the example shown.


Option Explicit
Declare Function Testthis Lib "test.dll" (ByVal i_Anyint As Integer) As Integer

Sub calldll()
    Call Testthis(2)
End Sub

Ie, its NOT an activeX DLL. Can it be done, and if so, how?

Cheers Tim, good answer as always.

I suspected as much, but there was always the chance that there was a way to do it somehow. Not going to try the add-in though.
