Using VBA Forms in TurboCAD DLLs by Rob Raine. Explains how to reuse Forms from VBA macros in VB DLLs
I thought as a starting point, it would be useful to make a collection of very simple 'Hello World' examples for all possible application/language combinations. For some of the projects I have written a brief specification - it's desirable that we create tools to follow the spec eventually, but at this stage anything is better than nothing.
Example Language File Name Who/Satus Macro Spec The suggestion is we just make a series of very simple macros all in the one .tcm. I will start with drawing text at WCS 0,0,0 VBA HelloWorld_Macro_VBA.zip I can do this. DB Custom Dragger (Tool) Spec
This Dragger should contain two tools:
- Tool 1 draws the text "Hello World Dragger" at WCS 0,0,0
- Tool 2 pops up an input box for the user to set a text value, and then creates creates an instance of the HelloWorld_Regen (see below) at WCS 0,0,0 with that value set in it's custon text property.
VB HelloWorld_Dragger_VB.zip I can do this. DB C++ (MFC) HelloWorld_Dragger_MFC.zip Takers? C++ (ATL) BCHelloWorld (4-Feb-04).zip (temporary)
I can do this. DB C++ (BCB) HelloWorld_Dragger_BCB.zip Alfred K Delphi HelloWorld_Dragger_Delphi..zip Takers? Custom Regen Spec This Regen should create text that can be edited via a custom Property Page. VB HelloWorld_Regen_VB.zip I can do this. DB C++ (MFC) HelloWorld_Regen_MFC.zip Takers?

Client Applications Spec This application should be dialog based, with an instance of a TC drawing in the main window. There should be a button/menu that causes some text to be drawn in the drawing.
