    VB Forms Calling C++ Code


    Jonathan,

    Does your book cover using VB forms in a C++ project? Or, is it better to
    call C++ code from within a VB project? I'm interested in how I might use
    a VB form as a user interface for data input, with command buttons that will
    trigger the execution of C++ code.

    A simple example I have in mind is a VB form with two text boxes. The first
    text box will accept a first name and the second a last name. How can I
    call C++ code to display the contents entered in each text box after a command
    button is clicked? Thanks.

    Lawrence,
    My book basically teaches how and advocates using VB for the front end and
    most of the application logic, while using C++ DLLs (COM or Standard) to
    perform speed critical functions. The book has many examples of VB
    applications calling functions in C++ DLLs. The book also contains an
    example program that almost exactly matches the description of the sample
    you requested.

    Thanks,
    Jonathan
