Hi all,

I have had some experience using pointers in C and C++, but not in VB6.

I am using a function that requires as an argument (ByVal lPtrBuff As Long, ByVal lWriteSize As Long). I am assuming this means a pointer to the beginning of the data I want to use, and a long integer of the data's size in bytes.

The data I want to use for lPtrBuff is stored in a file. How do I send it to the function? Also, how do I calculate lWriteSize? I don't really understand the internal workings of this function, but if I can send it the right arguments I am pretty sure it will work for me.

Thanks again for any help

Cheers,

Clam

it would help to have the function name.
basically you would use the function name and pass the variables to it.

{FunctionName} lptr,iwrite

this is the function that I want to use. it should be noted however that I didnt write it, I am just trying to use it...


Public Function WriteWavData(ByVal lPtrBuff As Long, ByVal lWriteSize As Long) As Long
Dim lSize As Long
If (m_hMmio = 0) Then
errHandler 5, "WriteWavData"
Else
' Write to the data chunk:
lSize = mmioWrite(m_hMmio, ByVal lPtrBuff, lWriteSize)
' Check we wrote the right number of bytes:
If Not (lSize = lWriteSize) Then
errHandler 6, "WriteWavData"
End If
WriteWavData = lSize
End If
End Function


What I mean by my question, however is that the wave data that I want it to write is stored in a file. How do I cram that into that function?
