Do we have a VIP dll or an activex component?

Unread post by VPExplorer »

Hi,

Do we have any general-purpose DLLs or com components that can be called from a scripting language like VBScript or JScript? Even if it has just a subset of the full VIP api.

I am afraid not.

All data that can change owner will have to be marshaled to/from COM memory and that will make many things both complicated and inefficient.

Which things would you like to call (as example)?

At this point, the main purpose would be the processing of trees of folders. But there's no fundamental reason that the nested lists can't be packaged into a file and sent to an executable.

Gotta think about it more.
