i have made a function that reads a *.dc6 file, palettizes it, renders in a picturebox and stores it in an array of IPictureDisp's. now theres 2 changes that needs to be made:
1: the array must be a Type ive made myself
2: the array must be returned from the function, like Split(). so i can say MyPics() = DC6Handler.LoadDC6("c:\myimage.dc6", "c:\mypalette.dat")

is this possible somehow? as in, DC6Handler (my functions + all thats needed) is a usercontrol that allows the user to Import, and soon also Export DC6 files. the import shall return an array while the Export shall take the same type of array as a parameter

Dim YourArray(10) As Byte

' Pass by reference.
Function ModifyBytes(ByRef YourArray() As Byte)

' Modify data in array here

'To return one value, add 'as bytes' after function header

' Add 'ModifyBytes = YourArray(2) inside your function
End Function

I hope this can help you. ^^
