Use PowerBuilder DLL in PowerBuilder
We use PB6.5.
We would want to use a DLL create from PB in a PB application.
We compiled an a PBL as DLL.
After we tried to use DLL in a user object external, but without success.
How can we do to use DLL create from PB or use in a new PB application some
object (visual and no) before compiled with PB?
Any help will be appreciated.
When you create a DLL from a PB library it is not really a standard Windows
DLL. I'm not sure what the difference is. If you are making calls from PB
then just use the standard PB calling syntax the ...Using a PowerBuilder app to drive another Windows app
My users need to run a canned Windows application repeatedly with a variety
of parameters on a variety of datasets. In order to do this, they have to
log in, choose a menu item, key in some parameters, click an OK button and
exit. And then do it again and again and . . .
We want to set up a database with the appropriate parameters and write an
application to drive the process. We've considered Winbatch but would
rather not introduce another development tool . . . if it's not too hard to
accomplish the task in PowerBuilder.
This has to run in a Windows 95 or NT Workstatio...One PowerBuilder app triggering an event on another PowerBuilder app's Frame
Running 2 concurrent PowerBuilder apps (both MDI). Is there a way to
trigger a user event on the frame of one of the apps from the other? I can
get a handle to the frame window, and I am guessing that a Send() of some
kind would do the trick, but I don't know which parameters to use or where
the parameters for the Send() are documented.
Thanks for the help.
I recently had the same situation. You can use send or post to send a message
to a window in another application. First you need the handle of the window

You don't want to use the ShowHelp function. That is for Windows Help
files (it launches the Windows Help engine).
Try the run function.

We are using (Distributed) PowerBuilder (v6.5) with MS SQL Server
(v6.5). PowerBuilder makes a connection to SQL Server and then calls a
C dll that makes its own connections to SQL Server via DB Library. My
problem is that we set the DB Library error handling via a call to the
dberrhandle() function within the C dll. This has the effect of
overriding the error handling function that seems to have been set by
PowerBuilder (since PB also uses DB Library). We first thought that we
might capture the error handle that PB originally set and then - upon
exiting the C dll - reset the dberr...HELP! Illegal Operation using PowerBuilder

Does anyone know how or if it is even possible to create a dll from
Powerbuilder 6.5 code for use by other apps?
No, you can't. You would need to use a MSVC++ or some other C/C++ IDE.
> Does anyone know how or if it is even possible to create a dll from

PB DLL's are not usable as DLL's in other applications. You can,
however, create COM and OLE objects that can be used in other
applications. Why would you want to do this though?
