PowerBuilder 11 and .NET: Callback function that passes foreign types to PowerBuilder


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.

        public void NtfyItem(string oper, int flags, IEOM_Object
father, IEOM_Object dep)
            if (_pbSession != null && !
                PBArgument operArg = new PBArgument();
                operArg.ParameterType = typeof(string);
                operArg.Style = ParameterStyle.ByValue;
                operArg.Value = new PBString(oper);

                PBArgument flagsArg = new PBArgument();
                flagsArg.ParameterType = typeof(int);
                flagsArg.Style = ParameterStyle.ByValue;
                flagsArg.Value = new PBInt(flags);

                PBArgument fatherArg = new PBArgument();
                fatherArg.ParameterType = typeof(IEOM_Object);
                fatherArg.Style = ParameterStyle.ByValue;
                fatherArg.Value = new PBOleObject(father);

                PBArgument depArg = new PBArgument();
                depArg.ParameterType = typeof(IEOM_Object);
                depArg.Style = ParameterStyle.ByValue;
                depArg.Value = new PBOleObject(dep);

                _pbSession.PostMethod(_pbObject, _notifyItemMethod,
                    new PBArgument[] { operArg, flagsArg, fatherArg,
depArg, });

The problem is though that I can't seem to use the values in the
"father" and "dep" parameters in PowerBuilder.  They exist, and I can
call some of the methods on there without crashing the application,
but I never get a valid result.  I've confirmed that PowerBuilder does
indeed recognize the method names because if I enter names that don't
exist I get the "Name not found calling..." error.

This is the code in my PowerBuilder application:

public subroutine uf_notifyitem (string as_operation, integer
ai_flags, oleobject aole_container, oleobject aole_object);
String ls_ItemStatus = "Unknown"
OleObject lole_status, lole_ObjectInfo

// lole_ObjectInfo is always null after this operation.  It shouldn't
// It also returns null with methods that return "string"
lole_ObjectInfo = aole_object.get_object_info()

// This line crashes
lole_status = lole_ObjectInfo.status_info

ls_ItemStatus = lole_status.name
mle_results.Text += as_operation + ": " +  "(" + ls_ItemStatus + ")" +
end subroutine

Forgive me if my formatting is a bit off...

I managed to figure it out.

Instead of passing the values back to PB as PBOleObject, I pass them
back as PBAny variables

Then, in PB I've got the following code:
#if defined PBWINFORM then
	System.Object l_intermediary
	EOMComLib.IEOM_Object l_objectInterface
	EOMComLib._EOM_ObjectInfo l_objectInfo

	// "Cast" the any variable into a System.Object - we cast directly
	l_intermediary = aole_object

	// "Recast" into the form we want
	l_objectInterface = l_intermediary

	// Get the object information
	l_objectInfo = l_objectInterface.get_object_info()

	// Save the status information for display
	ls_ItemStatus = objectInfo.status_info.name
#end if

Upgrade to PowerBuilder 9 or PowerBuilder 10?
Hi, Our company is going to upgrade PowerBuilder. Currently we are using version 7, and we are going to upgrade either to version 9 or 10. Does anyone have any recommendations if we should go for version 9 or 10? What is the current release of version 10, and is it stable or is there a lot of bugs? Best regards, Ronald Ommundsen e-mail: ronald.ommundsen@gard.no Ron; If you have any hope of running the applications in the future on XP, W2003 or soon to be W2006 (LongHorn) you will have to jump over to UniCode - ie PB10.

PowerBuilder 10.5.2 Build 7826 differs from PowerBuilder 11.5.1 Build 4675
Apparently there's some data conversion issues that differ from PowerBuilder 10.5.2 and 11.5.1 (builds listed in subject). The following mini scrip results in different returned values: Byte lb_test Decimal ld_test lb_test = 48 ld_test = Dec(lb_test) MessageBox("Test", String(ld_test)) In PowerBuilder 10.5.2, the messagebox displays the value "48". In PowerBuilder 11.5.1 the messagebox displays the value "0.48". It appears that in PB 11.5.1, it's dividing the result by 100 for some reason. It appears to be a bug, just wanted to ve...

Version of PowerBuilder (ref: Creating database for PowerBuilder)
