    Are they ready at Tech2012 @Seattle?

    I thought I'd only say this sentence in December, but here goes: "You'll have to wait for the 24th" 🙂

  3. Will the book contain a code sample for a native DLL?  Neither the 4.0, nor the 2009 book had this(actually, they were both very sparse on utilizing external DLLs).

    The MSDN sample msdn.microsoft.com/…/aa605477(v=ax.50).aspx is the only example that I have found circulating the net, and it using Kernel32.dll.  The problem is, no one seems to know what the Header file(with decorations) and CPP files actually need to look like.  Kernel32.dll's code isn't distributed, so that is not a useful example.

    I requested by copy at the Microsoft AX 2012 Tech Conference, and will continue to wait patiently for it if it is in there.  If not, I'll keep asking people until I find someone that knows how to write a native DLL that works.

    Thanks!

    Ben – I'm afraid the AX2012 book will not cover this aspect.

    I assume you are aware of the WinAPI class, which has plenty of examples of how to do the native DLL interop from the X++ side.  Header information for kernel32.dll can be found on MSDN – but not the actual CPP files.
