I have a VB.NET class which I want to use in my web application.
Can this be done or do I have to rewrite the class in Delphi.NET?

You should be able to create a VB.NET DLL that you could reference in the Delphi application.

Hmmm OK I'm thinking I'll just convert to Delphi the VB(it's actually VB not VB.NET) class isn't too long or complicated.
Do you have any experience with Delphi.NET and writing classes?

No, unfortunately I haven't had the time nor the inclination to learn.  It might be possible to convert the VB class to VB.NET, build a DLL, and then use Reflector + File Disassembler to get Delphi.NET code that would give you a place to start.

OK Bob,

Here's a curly one if you can give me the answer I'll give you the points.
How do I convert the VB statement "Redim Preserve" into Delphi syntax?


Public Sub SetColumns(inNum)
  Dim i
  If inNum > 0 Then
    ReDim Preserve mWidths(inNum - 1)
    For i = (mColumns - 1) To (inNum - 1)
      If i >= 0 Then mWidths(i) = 1
    mColumns = inNum
  End If
End Sub

Here's my best guess (using Reflector):

procedure Form1.SetColumns(inNum: TObject);
      obj1: TObject;
      obj4: TObject;
      if (Operators.ConditionalCompareObjectGreater(inNum, 0, false)) then
            self.mWidths := (Utils.CopyArray((self.mWidths as Array), New(array[(Conversions.ToInteger(Operators.SubtractObject(inNum, 1)) + 1)] of Integer)) as Integer[]);
            if (ForLoopControl.ForLoopInitObj(obj1, (self.mColumns - 1), Operators.SubtractObject(inNum, 1), 1, @(obj4), @(obj1))) then
                        if (Operators.ConditionalCompareObjectGreaterEqual(obj1, 0, false)) then
                              self.mWidths[Conversions.ToInteger(obj1)] := 1
                        until not ForLoopControl.ForNextCheckObj(obj1, obj4, @(obj1));
                  self.mColumns := Conversions.ToInteger(inNum)

Hey Bob,

I actually found a very easy way to do it just using SetLength(mWidths,inNum-1) as my array is dynamic.
But I'm true to my word so you get the points. Thanks for your help.
