Thread: Reading a type library (including parameters and datatypes) for dynamic display

    Reading a type library (including parameters and datatypes) for dynamic display

    Hi,

    We would like to generate a component for installation on our IIS/MTS box
    which will be called from a generic utility .ASP page. This .ASP will query
    you for the name of a .DLL to review. The ASP will call the Component
    which, in turn, will query the interface of the .DLL requested.

    The caveat is that I would like to also return the parameters and their data
    types to the user.

    From this we will generate an entry screen for the user to test the method.

    The purpose is to support the 40 +/- developer's on our team as interfaces
    change.

    If anyone has any ideas, please contact me. Thanks in advance for your
    help.

    Trac

    You could use the TypelibInfo component provided with VB. You have to
    download the help for this component from Microsoft.
