PHP Link with VB,ask for help

P: 48
Dear friends,

I need to link PHP with VB. I had created an interface in VB, that have some buttons. I want to host a website, which allow user to click the buttons and the control that I built in VB will work.

So, how can I link PHP and VB together?

Appreciate for any reply. Thank you.

Best regards.

Explain a bit more of the scope of your requirement. A statement like 'link VB and PHP together' does not explain much. Do you want to make them into 1 program or do you want to submit a VB generated HTML forum to PHP, or something like that?

Dear Ronald,

Actually I not very sure how it looks like as well because this is the first time I need something like this.

I should explain. Now my situation is, I had built one hardware based control which can let me control my house's device such as lights, fan, blah blah blah by VB(parallel port as well). When I click on the buttons, it will send a signal to activate the device.

Furthermore, I also host a website, then what I need to do is logon to the website by any computer, for instance, at cyber cafe, I can just logon to the website and click on the buttons that I had built in VB.

The problem is, I had tried ActiveX as well. It can create a web page that exactly the same as my VB layout. All buttons are shown in the web page. Unfortunately, it cannot work, when I click on the buttons, nothing happen, the device doesn't turn on.

The reason that I post here because it is more on PHP problem, my VB setting and control definitely can work, but not in website. So, I need someone to give me some advices. ^^

So... ...do you know what I need?haha^^. I'm not very good in words, I don't know what I really need or what it called actually. But what I need had shown above, just need to build a website that can link with VB and control the device.

Erm... ...thanks for replying me anyway. If you still dont understand what I need I think I might ask my friend to explain it again. Sorry, my english not that well.^^


Best regards.
