    Question regarding multi-language use

    Is it possible to design and write a GUI in Visual Basic that then have it call a DLL or something to have it run a specific algorithm from a different language? In this case, that language would be C++. Thanks in advance.



    And, another quick question:

    When writing a DLL, is the syntax similar to most other C based languages?

    Yes, it is. Usually you will just create a com .dll written in C/C++, which is incredibly simple. You can support non-com .dll's as well. I'd recommend checking out http://msdn.microsoft.com

    Thanks . I'll get to browsing the MSDN and googling up some tutorials for it.
