C# Interop - passing structure from UNmanaged to managed code

1 New Member
Hi,

I have a DLL written in C that creates a structure as a local variable, populates it, and then calls a function in managed c#. here is what im talking about:

//-----unmanged code's header file

typedef struct M
{
int a;
int b;
int c;
} MO;

typedef void (*MyCallBack)(M O m)
void register_callba ck(MyCallBack);

//------unmanged code's .c file

void register_callba ck(MyCallBack mcb)
{
MO co;
co.a = 67;

mcb(co);

}


-------------managed code (in rough, for brevity)

//struct MO
{
int a;
int b;
int c;
}


delegate void MyDelegate(MO m);

MyDelegate mdg;

mdg += delegate (MO m) {
MessageBox.Show (m.a.ToString() );
}

register_callba ck(mdg);
---------------------------------------------

when I run this code, the managed function does get called by the unmanaged dll code, and the message box pops up showing '67', however after that my program crashes. does anyone know why??

thanks!!

How does garbage collection work in C# and VB.NET for data returned from COM object? For example, a COM object written in C++ returns a SAFEARRAY to C# or VB.NET, will this SAFEARRAY (mapped to type in C# or VB.NET) be garbage collected? Similarily, if C# or VB.NET pass SAFEARRAY to the COM object via COM method invocation, will this SAFEARRAY be garbage collected after the call? My guess to answers for both questions is yes. Thanks.

Hello, I'm starting to investigate cs, managed c++ and interoperating with a very large unmanaged code base. We are going to use Windows Forms (written in cs) to replace our old fashioned GUI. The guts will remain in unmanaged c++. So I need to write public managed c++ wrapper classes for the couple of interfaces the unmanaged stuff needs to expose for the GUI. Questions:

Hi, In my application I have to use som external COM dll's. In the code: using MyDll when I build the project, I get (in addition to the .exe file) a Dll called Interop.MyDll.dll I want to send the .exe to the users without needing to send the dll. Is it possible to build my project without the accompanying dll ?

I would like to ask a question that is obvious to all people porting applications from the "traditional" C\VB6 interop scheme choosing C# vs VB.NET. We have a math library in C which ubiquitously takes a float* which represents an array of floats. If the memory is allocated by the client, in C# or VB.NET, I assume it must be "fixed" so that the GC does not move the pointer during the C algorithm. Given that we are choosing between C#...

Hi everybody, I'm working on exposing a .Net (C#) COM Server. Manage Code is exposting an interface with two methods. These methods take an IN/OUT Struct as parameter. Requirement is that the unmanaged client (C++) will initialize the struct fields with some values and these struct values can be modified or reallocated by Managed COM Server.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

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.
