Anyone know how to use DDE in .NET? (C#, or VB.NET)

In Visual Basic 6, using DDE was a simple process, but in .NET I can't seem to figure out how to do it. Any insight would be appreciated smile

I've found an example that appears to be relevant:
http://www.ozemail.com.au/~markhurd/vbnetdde.zip

He has intermixed server/client code in there, so it should help with your quest.

Remember you could still create a VB DLL to expose all the DDE methods that you need to use and use COM to talk to it.

G'luck.

Thanks d00dman!

At first glace this looks like a much more complicated procedure than I thought it would be. I will look over the code more thoroughly however, and if all else fails, you're suggestion to create a VB6 COM component is a good idea smile
