Mixing managed and unmanaged code

Hello

I have problem mixing managed and unmanaged C++ code in VS.NET 2003. I want to create a windows forms application which uses some C++ code that is incompatible with managed extensions (__fastcall etc.). I have tried disabling "compile as managed" option for these specific files, but it does not help: by trial and error I figured out that if there are any "references " in the project, IDE adds /FU switch with each of these references to compilation command line of _every_ source file in the project (even if managed extensions are disabled for it). /FU switch is 'force #using'. This causes my incompatible source files to fail compilation - because unmanaged code will not compile with /FU switch

Deleting the references from project solves the problem (i.e. /FU are no longer added to command line), but once I do that I can no longer edit my forms in the designer..

I'm stuck. Please help

Best regards
Marcin

I am developing a demo in C# using Managed DirectX. I wanted to use a C++ static library in the demo (its a class for handling physics), so I decided to create my Graphics classes in C#, inherit from them in MC++. So far so good...... I modified my MC++ project to run as mixed mode (removed nochkclr.obj, added msvcrt.lib, etc etc), and created 2 unmanaged classes which handled the calls to the static lib (btw all the code works fine in...

Hi All the information I had read suggested that if you had an existing C project that you wished to change to managed code all you had to do was use the /clr switch and then over time you could convert/add managed code bit by bit. I have done this on my large C project and all compiles and links OK. So far so good.

How difficult is it for one to integrate unmanaged C++ into C#? I know for functions one can use DLLimport but how does one go about doing it for classes? Do I have to completely reimplement the classes in managed C++ as a wrapper to the unmanaged C++ classes or is there an easier way? Essentially what I have done is written a C++ kernel mode driver and I want to use it from my C# program. Because it requires some setup outside the...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
