using a c++ dll that returns a pointer

Hello all,

I think I'm a bit lost in the managed/unmanaged world!
My problem is that I have a c++ dll for a program on a pda and I'd like to
use it in a program in .net and c#. I've almost understood how it works when
you wanna use a simple function, but I don't understand how to use it when
you have to use a personnal class (let's say CMyClass) as a parameter or
deal with a function that returns a pointer...
someone could give me some keys ?

thank you

Jérôme

You can treat pointer as IntPtr .NET type.
Make google queries for P/Invoke

Hi All, I was using VC++ earlier to register COM Server programmatically. What i do is I use LoadLibrary(Desired COM DLL), then GetProcAddress("DllRegisterServer"), and then call that function using the function pointer that GetProcAddress returns. How do i do that in C#, I tried using the DllImport attribute for calling LoadLibrary and GetProcAddress, it works but at last GetProcAddress returns a fucntion pointer ie a FARPROC or barely...

Is there any way to use a priority_queue with pointers? The reason why I ask is that I want a data structure that contains pointers to objects, not copies of objects. Also, I want them to be sorted by priority. On the same note, then, is there a way to write an operator: bool operator <(Foo* foo1, Foo* foo2);? Inside the operator, the pointers would be dereferenced then compared. Is it not possible to do this? If not, my solution...

I am pretty much lost here - I am trying to create a managed c++ wrapper for this dll, so that I can use it from c#/vb.net, however, it does not conform to any standard style of coding I have seen. It is almost like it is trying to implement it's own COM interfaces... below is the header, and a link to the dll+code: Zip file with header, example, and DLL:...

Dear All, The problem of choosing pointer or reference is always confusing me. Would you please give me some suggestion on it. I appreciate your kind help.

I've seen examples of using the CallWindowProc Windows API function to call functions through their addresses in VB6 -- a clever workaround to emulate C-like function pointer semantics. A well-known example is the use of CallWindowProc to call a function gotten via LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress. For example, I've seen code similar to the following which can register/unregister a COM DLL where the path to the DLL is known only at runtime -- in...
