DirectPlay8 Groups in VB

Recommended Posts

mark-c    122
Hi Could somebody give me an example of how to create a directplay8 group in vb. What I cant quite understand is does directplay give me the GroupID or can I supply it. What I want to do is to have a number of directplay groups related to map locations. So ideally I can create a group referenced to that location. Thanks

Private Sub CreateGroups
Dim Info As DPN_GROUP_INFO
With Info
.lInfoFlags = DPNINFO_NAME
.Name = "Groupname"
End With
intCurrentGroup = 0 ''//Create group 1
Call objDPServer.CreateGroup(Info, DPNOP_SYNC)
End Sub

Private Sub DirectPlay8Event_CreateGroup(ByVal lGroupID As Long, ByVal lOwnerID As Long, fRejectMsg As Boolean)
''//If creating the race groups
RaceGroups(intCurrentGroup) = lGroupID ''//Set the groupid to the last created group (done synced)
End Sub



done

Ah well since you put it like that..

Thanks

I dont know about other people, but I sometimes struggle with the VB samples that Microsoft uses. Its like they always treat VB as an afterthought.
