old DDE knowledge, anyone?
Posted on 2013-10-22
I know it's old technology, but I have an app that broadcasts Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) messages that I need to receive. The app isn't old, but their data communication methodology is. The problem is I don't know how to receive the messages and because DDE is old, resources are scarce as Google hasn't yielded much.
I've read the brief MS articles, but they're too terse to really gain much.
Can anyone point me to samples of C++ or Visual Basic code that acts as a DDE client? Maybe something I can compile without much change just to see how the communication happens?
p.s. I'm running on Windows 7
