BUILD DLL Command
Creates a dynamic-link library (DLL) with a .dll file name extension using class information from a project file.
BUILD DLL DLLFileName FROM ProjectName [RECOMPILE]
- 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.
- 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 DLL automatically registers the servers in the Server Classes list box on the Servers tab of the Project Information dialog box.
