I do not pretend to be an expert on these matters. I have used DLLs
a number of times in Silk and I believe the short answer is you cannot referance
a method for a class in a dll directly.
I know you can easilly get to a function in a dll .. but methods require class
instances .. i.e objects. Having said that I think it very possible to write a VB or C++ dll that has a function with return type string .. that loads the dll
you want .. instatiaties an object calls the method in question .. and returns
what you need. (just like a regular dll function call only now you write your own
I realize this may not be exactly what you are looking for. It may also be
somewhat easier for you to write an executable (in VB or C++) and do essentially
the same thing and call it via SYS_Execute parsing the return list for the return
value .. simply employ a print to screen of what you want in the executable.
By the way if it turns out that my short answer is wrong please do post your solution,
it's always good to know more on how these interfaces work!
