BUILD MTDLL Command

Creates a multithreaded Windows dynamic-link library (.dll), or Automation server, using class definitions from a project.


BUILD MTDLL MTDLLFileName FROM ProjectName [RECOMPILE]

Parameters

MTDLLFileName

Specifies the file name of the dynamic-link library to build. The default file name extension is .dll.

FROM ProjectName

Specifies the name of the project from which the dynamic-link library is built.

The project must contain a class designated as OLEPUBLIC or an error message is displayed. To designate a class as OLEPUBLIC in program code, include the OLEPUBLIC keyword in DEFINE CLASS. To designate a class as OLEPUBLIC in the Class Designer, choose Class Info from the Class Menu and select the OLE Public check box.

[RECOMPILE]

Specifies that the project be compiled before the dynamic-link library is built. All program and format files; form, label, report, and visual class library source code; and stored procedures in databases in the project are compiled.

BUILD MTDLL registers the server automatically in the Server Classes list on the Servers tab of the Project Information dialog box.

The Visual FoxPro runtime that creates multithreaded .dll files creates in-process servers only. Many user input commands and functions are not supported. For more information, see Interoperability and the Internet.
