Anyone know of any tutorials or books that can teach me how to create .dll files to use in my window programs? What program would I use to create them? Would a standard text editor work just as well? -Cecil

You can use Visual Studio to make DLLs, just start a new project of type Dynamic Link Library (DLL)

Basically, you write functions, without a main() or WinMain() (although there is a DllMain() for advanced features) and then export the functions...

You can then link to the library with the .lib file created by the compiler or using LoadLibrary() and GetProcAddress().

I havn't got a proper tutorial or anything, but I learnt from the Win32 API help, its all in there.

If you have any problems post again or mail me, I'll be glad to give you some source or just some advice.

Hope It Helps

I use assembler for my DLL''s although most people want to use some version of C or C++. But if your interested in assembler check out win32asm.cjb.net

It has many nice tutorials on assembler including creating a DLL. (Which I''ve done, works well!)

Hope that helped!
See ya,
