GeneralCalling a win32 dll from VB.NET Pin
Marco Turrini5-Feb-06 23:51
MemberMarco Turrini5-Feb-06 23:51 
Hello to everybody,

I'm trying to call a function in a win32 dll; the documentation, written in C++, for the dll reports the calling convention as:
SHORT Start (UCHAR ucNumCom, ULONG usSpeed)

In a module, I wrote the following line:
Declare Function Start Lib "abc.dll" (ByVal ucNumCom As Char, ByVal usSpeed As UInt64) As Short

Then I wrote the following code (in the click event of a button)
Start(CStr(serialPort).Chars(0), speed)
(where serialPort is a string variable and speed is a UInt64 one).

The dll function executes and returns me an error code of InvalidParameter; don't get me wrong: i don't fall in any Try...Catch branch.

Is there anybody out there who can help me?

Thanx in advance

Marco Turrini
