Passing a dynamic array from VB to a C++ DLL as parameter

in VB we can easily use dynamic arrays as parameter
example:
Function MyFunction(MyDynArray() as Long)
'called by
MyFunction MyDynArray


and then the array can be redimed and filled by the function

how can i do this in C++ ?
and is it possible to redim it as 2-dimensional array ?

Hi ennixo,

Sorry for the delay. (been under water... :)

Have a look at this KB article. It explains what you want to achieve.

HOWTO: Pass Arrays Between Visual Basic and C
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q207/9/31.asp&NoWebContent=1

Since VB arrays are under the covers SAFEARRAYs you can redim and manipulate this arrays at will. There are just some considerations regarding user defined types.

If you need a sample other than the one provided in the article let me know.
