    Need to call API functions


    Hi,

    I need to call functions from another program.
    In VB I would do this:

    Private Declare Function ConnectVB _
    Lib "_krnl.dll" () As Long
    Private Declare Function DisconnectVB _
    Lib "_krnl.dll" () As Long
    Private Declare Function ConnectedTriggerVB _
    Lib "_krnl.dll" (ByVal TRXName As String) As Long
    Private Declare Function UnconnectedTriggerVB _
    Lib "_krnl.dll" (ByVal N As String) As Long

    and then I could call these functions. Can I do anything similar
    in VBSript? Or would I have to make a component to do this?

    Nikki,

    You will need a component since VBScript does not have direct access to the
    system. The best thing is to "wrap" these calls in a VB component, just the
    way you have done it in your example.
