PMI, CSAFE and Visual BASIC

Post by raotor » March 25th, 2016, 8:02 am

Hello,

Completely new to VB but do have some programming experience and have recently installed Visual Studio Express. I am interested in playing around with the PMI controls as provided for in an ActiveXpackage available from Concept 2. however, looking at the PMI documentation, it seems to me that I am only able to gain access to the PMI functions through MS Office which can then via Excel link through to the VB editor.

Can I have access to the PMI library calls without having to go through the Excel route and simply use Visual Studio as normal to develop PMI applications?

Also, as I currently understand it, CSAFE appears to provide more functions than the PMI does and so I was wondering whether there is any way to use CSAFE calls from within a Visual BASIC program?

Thanks.


Regards

Steve

You can do ActiveX stuff in VB.

I've not tried it. I've got VS2015 Community edition on this new laptop, but I've not installed the C2 PMI stuff.
