    Need help convert VB 2005 Import to TB

    i need help to convert VB 2005 Import to TB Declare.
    If you know Vbasic maybe you can help me out?

    [VB code]


    Imports ActiveHomeScriptLib
    Imports System
    Module Module1
    Dim WithEvents ActiveHomeObj As ActiveHome
    <MTAThread()> Sub Main()

    'create ActiveHome object
    Try
    ActiveHomeObj = CreateObject("X10.ActiveHome")
    Catch exc As Exception
    Console.WriteLine("err num: " & Str(Err.Number) & " '" & exc.ToString & "'")
    Finally
    End Try

    'send a1 on
    Try
    ActiveHomeObj.SendAction("sendplc", "a1 on")
    Catch exc As Exception
    Console.WriteLine("err num: " & Str(Err.Number) & " '" & exc.ToString & "'")
    Finally
    End Try

    'wait for events
    Dim nRead
    While True
    System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(0)
    nRead = Console.Read()
    End While

    End Sub

    'events from ActiveHome: write out received event
    Sub ActiveHome_RecvAction(ByVal bszRecv As Object _
    , ByVal vParm1 As Object _
    , ByVal vParm2 As Object _
    , ByVal vParm3 As Object _
    , ByVal vParm4 As Object _
    , ByVal vParm5 As Object _
    , ByVal vReserved As Object) Handles ActiveHomeObj.RecvAction
    Console.WriteLine("RecvAction: " & bszRecv & " " & vParm1 & " " & vParm2 & " " & vParm3 & " " & vParm4 & " " & vParm5)
    End Sub

    End Module

    If this is COM object, you might have a look at examples in ThinBASIC/SampleScripts/COM.

    I wanted to help you with the translation, but sadly I do not have the X10.ActiveHome on my PC installed. To instantiate it, you would need something like:
    Uses "COM"
    
    ' -- Create object
    DWord retVal
    DWord ActiveHomeObj = COM_CREATEOBJECT("X10.ActiveHome", RetVal)
    
    ' -- Call method (parameters should be supplied in form of Variant array)
    Dim Params() As Variant
    Params(1) = "sendplc"
    Params(2) = "a1 on"
    COM_CallMethod(ActiveHomeObj, "SendAction", 2, Params(1))
    
    ...
    
    
    ' -- Release it before script ends
    COM_RELEASE(ActiveHomeObj)
    
    But as I said, I cannot test the rest, as I do not have this interface on my PC. The mentioned sample scripts should help you, I hope.

    Send Works

    OK Petr, Thanks for your help!
    The send works with three minor changes -

    Uses "COM" ' -- Create object
    Dim RetVal As Variant '<---------------------
    'DWord retVal
    DWord ActiveHomeObj = COM_CREATEOBJECT("X10.ActiveHome", RetVal)
    ' -- Call method (parameters should be supplied in form of Variant array)
    Dim Params(2) As Variant '<------------------
    Params(1) = "sendplc"
    Params(2) = "B09 off"
    COM_CALLMETHOD(ActiveHomeObj, "SendAction", 2, Params(1), RetVal) '<-----

    Will this cause an event to be generated for Receive?
    or do I need a While loop to test it?

    There are 2 Params to send and 6 Params for Receive.

    Hi Steinie,

    I am sorry, but regarding receiving event, I never did this in ThinBASIC.
    Maybe worth some time to check examples in SampleScripts/Oxygen/COM, my experience with COM is limited, maybe Charles Pegge could know more?
