In C you can declare a function like this

     int CombineArguments( int first, ... )

where the ellipses denote a variable argument list.

How can I do this in visual basic 6?

Tia,  avi;
Yes, in VB 6 you must use the PARAMARRAY word in the list of arguments; search in the msdn help file of vb

Like below, the only drawback is they have to be Variant.

Public Function CombineArguments(ParamArray vItem() As Variant) As Long
End Function

Try this:

Dim Res
Res = MyFunction("abc", 123, True, 4.5)

Private Function MyFunction(ParamArray args As Variant) 
   Dim i As Integer
 
   For i = LBound(args) To UBound(args)
      'do something
   Next i
End Function

Open in new window
