    Question Skeleton of a windows32-DLL in C-language

    I need a skeleton for a DLL, written in C for compiling with the lcc32 compiler not in C++.
    Possible is also the source code of a DLL as an example.
    I have a skeleton in 16 Bit but it does not work.

    Thanks in advance

    DLL frame

    All you need is the prototype and the calling conventions, then compile it as a code resource. I will see if I can find some DLL source for 32-bit C. Usually all code resource (whether they are DLLs or any other form of code fragment) have the following form:


    Prototype:

    rtrn_val exampleDLLentry(arg_1, arg_2, ...);

    for example, it might look like this:

    long MDEF(int,int,int,char*);

    then when it gets called, it's on this order:

    long MDEF(int msg,int where_click,int last_click,char *stringP)
    {
    switch(msg)
    {
    case POSTFLIGHT:
    break;
    case UPDATE:
    break;
    case DRAW:
    break;
    case CLICK:
    break;
    case POSTFLIGHT:
    break;
    };
    }

    enjoy
