One of the really fun things about being associated with the Visual Basic team is getting to see all of the varied usages to which our customers put it. From enterprise software to games, our customer base covers a wide range.
Today I posted an interview screencast on Channel 9. In this interview, Jared Parsons, a Developer on the Visual Basic IDE, shows us the P/Invoke Interop Assistant available on CodePlex. The tool helps with converting unmanaged C code to managed P/Invoke signatures and vice versa.
I’m happy to announce that the PInvoke Interop Assistant tool is now available on CodePlex. This includes the binaries, source code and the dev authored unit tests.
It is hosted on the more general CLR Interop Tools page.
I will be actively maintaining this tool in the future and (hopefully) adding more features.
Jared here again.
I very excited to announce we recently released a tool I’ve been working on to MSDN that will greatly help with using PInvoke in managed code. The tool is called the “PInvoke Interop Assistant” and is included as part of a MSDN article on marshalling data for PInvoke and Reverse PInvoke scenarios.
