Netmeeting SDK

Microsoft releases an SDK for netmeeting, but the source is all in c/objects for the samples.  Has anyone here seen an example of using this within a VB project?  I know the "ILS" defines all of the objects etc, but I cannot see how to use them in VB, since the source is all in c++.

under Project, select Project References, find and check "net meeting 1.1 type library"

now in a blank project, add a command button and the following code:

Option Explicit
Public WithEvents mNetMeeting As NetMeeting
Private Sub Command1_Click()

    Set mNetMeeting = New NetMeeting
    mNetMeeting.CallTo ""
End Sub

I assume the SDK gives you more control and possible a better object model. the 1.1 type library only exposes a few items, basically starters for netmeeting and enders.

Hope this helps.

Wow, thanks.  You wouldn't happen to know where I could find what functions are imported and can be used with that type library would you?

when I load the reference in the VB 6.0 environment, I use the object browser to look at the exported fucntions.

checking MSDN yeilds this as a start: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/EN-US/netmeet/nm3com1_9jfw.asp
