ELHAPI32.DLL

Hi I am having an issue with using a ELHAPI function
I have it declared in my BAS Module.

Declare Function WD_Convert Lib "C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\RUMBA\System\EHLAPI32.DLL" _
                (ByVal hInstance As Long, ByVal ConvertType As Integer, ROWCOL As ROWCOL_TYPE, ByVal ShortName As String) As Long

And RowCol

' Row/Column Type
Type ROWCOL_TYPE
    Row     As Integer  'x-coordinate
    Col     As Integer  'y-coordinate
End Type

I try to run WD_Convert
Dim ShortName As String, Rows As Integer, Cols As Integer, lWnd As Long, RetC As Integer
Dim RC As ROWCOL_TYPE
Dim POS As Integer
Dim Str As String
Dim StrLn As Integer


Private Sub Command1_Click()
RC.Row = 1
RC.Col = 2
Str = "Hello"
RetC = WD_ConnectPS(lWnd, ShortName)
MsgBox RetC
RetC = WD_SendKey(lWnd, "@C")
MsgBox RetC
POS = WD_Convert(lWnd, Asc("R"), RC, ShortName)
When I run it I get a runtime error 6 at the WD_Convert function

this is VB 6.0
Please let me know if you need more information
Thanks

You have declared POS as an integer while the function WD_Convert returns a Long number.

Try declaring POS as Long

Great, good job! my next issue is I am not sure this is returning the right position. Assigin RC.Row =1 and RC.Col = 1 POS retuens with 1769472. I get the same error msg on my next line using POS as the position to WD_WD_CopyStringToPS

Private Sub Command1_Click()
POS = 0
RC.Row = 1
RC.Col = 1
Str = "Hello"
RetC = WD_ConnectPS(lWnd, ShortName)
MsgBox RetC
RetC = WD_SendKey(lWnd, "@C")
MsgBox RetC
POS = WD_Convert(lWnd, Asc("R"), RC, ShortName)
MsgBox "Position is" & POS


RetC = WD_CopyStringToPS(lWnd, POS, Str, Len(Str))
MsgBox RetC

Sorry, I have no knowledge of the API itself. If no-one else comments here, I suggest that you ask another question, perhaps adding more zones, if there are any others that seem appropriate.

The WD_Convert should convert row, col screen position in to a single interger position. like Row 2 Col 1 will be 80. no matter what I set RowCol for POS = 1507328

Dim ShortName As String, Rows As Integer, Cols As Integer, lWnd As Long, RetC As Integer
Dim RC As ROWCOL_TYPE
Dim POS As Long
Dim Str As String
Dim StrLn As Integer


Private Sub Command1_Click()
POS = 0
RC.Row = 2
RC.Col = 1
Str = "Hello"
RetC = WD_ConnectPS(lWnd, "Z")
MsgBox RetC
RetC = WD_SendKey(lWnd, "@C")
MsgBox RetC
Print RC.Row
Print RC.Col

POS = WD_Convert(lWnd, Asc("P"), RC, "Z")
