VB6 and testing DLLs
Posted on 2003-10-21
I am using VB6 to build a Word Addin.
I was intending to create is as a DLL.
However my experience with VB6 is limited to creating the odd very minor exe file, ie just playing.
So can I ask a few questions:
1)What are the differences between all the possible projects, ie standard exe, DLL addin, Dll, DLL exe etc.
2)Which one is best suited for my task.
3) what is the best practice for testing DLLs etc, I mean, if I create a form in a DLL, I cannot simply press F5 and expect it to compile and run, nothing happens. Do I have to create the DLL project, and then create a standard exe project, then compile the DLL and reference the exe project to it? Or is this what the "Groups" are about?
I will split the points up for the questions if needed.
You adivce/thoughts are appreciated.
