Linking VB and C++

Hello,

Can any one help me to link a C++program with VisualBasic. For example,

I must have a VB Form which accepts inputs in the text box and that value should be basically assigned to the variable in the C++ program, which earlier I was getting using cin>> number.

In short,

the VB form should get the "Number" and assign to the varaible declared in .Cpp file. As of now, I was getting all the values using cin in cpp and now I want to get the values using a User Interface in visual Basic and still use it in the old CPP file.

Please help.

Thanks

I would suggest to use a dialog based application under VC++. The app wizard will do the most parts of it for you. Mainly designing the dialog = form rests on you. In that way there is no problem in linking but there might be one in redesigning the form.

sr_sql,

if your really want your VB to talk with C++, then go for Win32 DLL.
create Dll and use this in your VB prog either by setting the reference(Project->Reference)
or go for CreateObject function.
