Using a custom DLL
« on: December 10, 2007, 06:37:15 PM »

Can anyone point me to a document that explains how a script executes? I have several questions, the bigest ones are as follows:

1. When a script (haveing many steps) executes the line that calls a custom .DLL... does the .DLL complete PRIOR/BEFORE the next line in the script executes? If not, then how do you work with the timing of .DLLs that interface with other equipment, etc. that are timing critical?
2. Is there a mode that can sets the condition of the script to execute (and complete) each line before continuing?
3. Does MACH3 support COM? (as in an Out-Of-Process ActiveX control?)... or only .DLL and OLE...
4. There used to be a video that explained scripting and making calls to .DLLs... I no longer can find it in the video section (that has been changed since my last visit several months ago...) does anyone know it's where-abouts?
5. How do Plug-ins compare to calling a DLL from a script?

Any help is MUCH appreciated!  THANKS FORUM!

If you are asking "is there a code to make Vis Basic wait whilst the present move is completed" then that is

The Script Tutorials are now back - albeit in a new format.
Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.
