Visual DLL Product Abstract
Visual DLL 2.1 is a unique product that brings Visual Basic programmers on par with their C++ counterparts. Visual DLL lets you create Standard Windows DLL's with True Function Exports. This means that the resulting DLL's are indistinguishable from those created with C++! DLL's created with Visual DLL can be used with applications that are designed to work only with "C written DLL's".
Internally, the DLL's can display Visual Basic forms, use databases and call other DLL's. Visual DLL provides total flexibility and the facilities for creating feature-rich competitive software. Visual DLL provides the facilities for creating standard dynamic-link libraries in 16 or 32-bit using Visual Basic 3.0 through 6.0. The DLL code can functionally perform any operation that Visual Basic can perform, because the actual Visual Basic interpreter run-time engine is used to execute the DLL code. This means that programmers can encapsulate the functionality of Visual Basic into a DLL and have that DLL be accessed by other, non-Visual Basic, programs, as well as programs written in Visual Basic using VB's "Declare" statement.
DLL's created with Visual DLL can use any VBX or OCX that Visual Basic can use and can open forms and dialogs. Virtually any interface that requires a "C" written DLL can be fulfilled with Visual DLL without using the more complex C programming language. The resulting DLL's can be called from any Windows application because Visual DLL creates standard Windows DLL's. Once the domain of C programmers, Visual DLL breaks through the DLL creation barrier and provides simple and easy DLL creation facilities for Microsoft Visual Basic.
