How do I create an external function that can be called by PowerBuilder using Absoft Fortran 95?
I've downloaded a trial version of Absoft Pro Fortran 9.0 in

I am able to build a DLL without problem but I when I run
I either get an error message "[R0015] Error calling
external function x
at line y in open event of object z" or PB crashes.
The error would seem to indicate that PB can't find the
routine inside the DLL but I've used every possible
of name and/or alias that I can think of.
Is there any way of "looking into" the DLL to see what the

I`m working with PowerBuilder 6.5. I want to make an external function
and access it from an application. That�s i want to make an external
component that PowerBuilder developers can use it, but not see its
source code. For example, a dll or another file.
I don`t want to use the object functions that provides PB, cause if i do
it, its code can be copied. How can i do it ???
And one more thing, i want that that function can be called from any
PBuilder script and it returns any PB datatypes, such as datawindow with

Hi. Can anyone help us with this problem?
We have a PowerBuilder (6.5) application which calls an external C dll
passing it references to arrays of structures. We have noticed that
there will be a 30 second delay immediately after PowerBuilder would
call the C dll (between the PowerBuilder function call and entry into
the C dll). Now we pass references to fixed (bouded) arrays of
structures to the C dll. Upon further testing we discovered that if we
reduce the array numbers (they are rather large) then there would be no
gap - it would go in a flash. The million dollar question ...PowerBuilder 5.0 with external functions

To access a method or property in an OCX control, you would do something
like this; ocx_1.Object.propertyhere = xxx

The properties and methods you call depend (greatly!) on the OCX that you

I'm using a C# assembly to catch COM events (using IConnectionPoint
etc) from a particular API. But instead of handling the events
in .NET, I pass the information on back to PB so it simulates a type
of callback. It seems to work, but I don't know for how long.
This is the one the events that gets raised. The _notifyItemMethod is
the name of the method on the PowerBuilder object. The _pbSession is
obtained from the .Session property of the PowerBuilder object that I
pass to the constructor of the event handler.
