ctypes windll question

P: n/a
I followed the tutorial about ctypes and I still cannot figure out how
to call a method of a calss within the dll.

For example:
a dll named 'foo' contain a class named 'bar' which expose a method
named 'baz'.

if I either do:

mydll = windll.foo
mycls = mydll.bar

or
mycls = windll.foo.bar

or
mycls = windll.foo.bar()

I get an erros: "function 'bar' not found " which is right, since bar
is a class and not a function. However, I still need to create an
instance of this inner class (bar) so I can access its public method
(baz).

I cannot find anywhere instructions for that.

I discovered pywin32-210.win32-py2.5 package which does all the work
for me.

ctypes interfaces with C, not C++. C++ compilers do various forms of
name manging, create virtual tables, etc. that are compiler dependent.
You cannot call C++ from ctypes.
