Hi guys, I have some problem converting some codes from C# to VC++.net
 
The first one is that I am using Interop.QuartzTypeLib.dll
I put them in reference in VC++ and do a:
using namespace QuartzTypeLib;

then when it comes to this line
in C#
m_objFilterGraph = new FilgraphManager(); ---> Fine

in VC++
m_objFilterGraph = new FilgraphManager(); --->ERROR! QuartzTypeLib::FilgraphManager' : you cannot create an instance of an interface...??????

I checked that the C# treats FilegraphManager as an Abstract Interface, whereas VC++ treats it as Interface.
Is that the reaosn why? or I simply canno tuse QuartzTypeLib in VC++


Is there a way to convert:
in C#
m_objBasicAudio = m_objFilterGraph as IBasicAudio;

to VC++.net (managed)
???

Thanks all

If FilgraphManager is interface, what is non-interface class which implements it? Create instance of this class and cast it to FilgraphManager.

m_objBasicAudio = m_objFilterGraph as IBasicAudio;

Without knowing these classes I give you example using .NET classes.

C#

IEnumerable p;
p = new Hashtable() as IEnumerable;

C++

IEnumerable* p;
Hashtable* h;

h = new Hashtable();
p = h;

Hi AlexFM,
i checked the DLL and found that the FilgraphManager is the class that implements it..

This is what i have :
FilgraphManager  *m_objFilterGraph;

then i try to do
m_objFilterGraph = new FilgraphManager();  error...

public class FilgraphManager
    Member of QuartzTypeLib
    Associated COM class is QuartzTypeLib.FilgraphManagerClass

It is difficult to say what happens. Do you have C# code working with this class? Or some documentation about this library?

C# application doesn't work, it gives exception immidiately when starts. However, now I have QuartzTypeLib.dll, so I can do something with it. Please create console C++ application (minimum code) which shows your problem, and post here. I will try to do something.
