Currently I have a few .bas files and one .cls file in vb6 code that I wish to compile to a com dll. Everything looks good once I register the dll to my computer and then I can add reference to the dll in my program. The problem is that I can only see the public subs of the dll from the .cls and nothing from the .bas files that I have added to the dll?


I have read that it should be possible so I am lost as to where I have went wrong.

Is it really VB.NET. In my opinion it is VB (without .NET)!

"I can only see the public subs of the dll" - becouse only public subs will be visible!

What are you talking about?

It is not the public subs that i am worried about if you have read my question. I understand that only public subs will be visible in the dll but its only the public subs in the .cls file that show and not the public subs in the .bas files

VB6 is not able to compile the code for a VB module to a standard Windows DLL.

There is however a way, which is described in this article http://www.hermetic.ch/vbm2dll.htm[^]

It also links to the original source, the article of Ron Petrusha.
