Help - Girder to Visual Basic

I am looking for a method to notify my Visual Basic application of events
in Girder - i.e. a plugin or something else which can raise an event or call a function in my VB application. In this way I can use my existing code in VB an have it triggerd by Girder events.

Is this possible or is there any other solution to my problem.

My problem is if I have undersood things corectly exactly the opposit of the one solved by girder.dll

There are many ways to do this. You can use a TCP/IP connection, LUA Sockets, a COM object from your VB app etc.

Thanks for the answer. A COM object from my VB application sounds like the thing I am looking foor. I would really apreciate if you could help me a little bit further. Where can I find some sample code for this?

Take a look at the luacom thread at the top of this forum. This describes the Girder end. I don't have any VBA experience using COM in VBA.
