Hi Gents,

There is a line in VB that I can't seem to get working or a translation to work in C#. I'm really stuck any ideas?

Old VB code...
moAB = Microsoft.VisualBasic.Interaction.CreateObject("Broker.Application", "");

New C#?

Let me thank your efforts in advance.

Cheers - Sean

have a look at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.activator.createinstance.aspx

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vbgeneral/thread/128e5981-35ce-436a-9323-e2fafdbecbbd/
Dim SomeObject As Object = System.Activator.CreateInstance(GetType(Button))
        // C# ?? >>
Object SomeOject = System.Activator.CreateInstance(GetType(Button));

Open in new window

Yes, there is no analog for the function in C#. However, try this:

Also, have a  look:

Eventually, you may use this VB code in C#, just need to add a reference to Microsoft.VisualBasic ...

Well, I'm totally stuck.  I  tried zip up and attached the project but it wouldn't let me on EE ...I would really appreciate anyone who can get it to build and run.  Run -- > Only so the window gui comes up.
I can email it to you.  Let me know.

There are only 11 build errors.  Remember this use to be in VB.

Best - Sean
