Basic Steps in Making a DLL in DOT NET which could be called by regular COM objects:
NB:*Although we have an example in the microsoft.com site..that Example never works
*For Safety make all the parameters string type
1. Struct of Lib:
Public Class CCWClass
Public Function PassStr(ByVal a As String) As String
PassStr = "Hi From .NET Component " & a
2. Uning the Dot net command prompt Create a Strong Name
c:/>SN -k StrongName.snk
3. OPEN AssemblyInfo.VB of the CLASS library and make changes here
<Assembly: AssemblyTitle("Sunrise 10G Binary Updater")>
<Assembly: AssemblyDescription("Sunrise 10G Binary Updater By Shrimant Patel")>
4. Add Another Line to AssemblyInfo.VB giving path to the strong name created in Step 2:
5. Compile the Class Lib in Release mode:
6. Run the following commands from the Dot net Command Prompt.
NB:Change the Directory to the default output dir of the Class Lib where the compiled DLL could be found.
tlbexp DLL_FOR_10G.dll /out:DLL_FOR_10G.tlb
regasm /tlb=DLL_FOR_10G.tlb DLL_FOR_10G.dll
gacutil /if DLL_FOR_10G.dll
Usage FROM ASP
SET OBJMSGBOX = Server.CreateObject("CCWComponent.CCWClass")
Response.write OBJMSGBOX.PassStr("AND ASP")
Usage FROM VB6
Dim OBJMSGBOX as New CCWComponent.CCWClass
Msgbox OBJMSGBOX.PassStr("AND ASP")
