Calling PB components within IIS

I'm thinking about the possibility of calling PB code from a website hosted in IIS.

Is it possible to use the AJAX method to call PB code?

AJAX is based on a browser function that works similar to the PB function GetURL. Javascript code passes input variables in the URL and a server script runs in the background. When the server side script finishes, it passes the output to a Javascript function specified in the initial call. The assumption is that the output is in XML format but technically it could be any format that the Javascript in your web page can understand.

I would likely be doing this in Classic ASP which consists of hand coded HTML & Javascript on the front end and VBScript on the backend.

Hi Roland;

   Food for thought ... why not have either an ASP or ASP.Net code call a PB NVUO deployed as a web service instead?

Hi Roland,


we used in the past to create COM Objects to call this in ASP used by IE Clients.

Just use the .net assembly target in and it will be com visible :-)


If you want do do this in PB Classic, you can also just use the .net assembly target, but you have to decompile the result,

change one bit to make it com visible and then recompile it.


Appeon should add this feature ( just change this one bit)

to pb classic to support com visible .net assemblies as does.
