Is it possible to call a c++ function from c-sharp.


I know it can be done in a dll, but is it possible to call a c++ / c
function directly from c-sharp.

No, You have to use the PInvoke services in order to call exported C style
functions from C#.
please check the PInvoke services in MSDN.

Thank you,

So, that means that it is not possible to add a c++ source
to a c# project directly and link them together,
I have to make it in a dll ?

Like C, Python seems to insist I declare functions before calling them - rather than, say, scanning to the end of the current script when it can't immediately find what function I'm referring to. C lets you predeclare functions to allow for the existence of functions with circular dependencies. Does Python allow you to do something similar? If not how do you create functions with circular dependencies in

Hi all, I was wondering if anybody could enlighten me on the possibility of dynamic casting. Or, well, whether or not I'm actually trying to do this the right way. What I have is a base class that several classes inherit from. From time to time I need to add new inherited types so I want something that is as versatile as possible, preferably not requiring naming all subtypes in a switch statement.
