- This document refers to development in Visual Basic 6.0.
For information regarding WinDriver’s support forVisual Basic .NET, refer to Technical Document #128.
- Beginning with version 11.2.0 of WinDriver, Visual Basic 6.0 is no longer supported.
WinDriver provides you with the function
WD_VB_GetAddress() for getting a pointer to a variable — i.e., its address. To obtain the pointer to a variable the function must be called as
pBuffer = WD_VB_GetAddress (test, 1, 1)
' where "test" is the variable whose pointer is required.
' The other two parameters must always be one.
You can also use Visual Basic’s
VarPtr() function to get the pointer to a variable (i.e., it’s address).
You can refer to the WinDriver Visual Basic samples and generated DriverWizard code for examples of using both
VarPtr() to acquire a pointer to a variable in Visual Basic.
