Hi Sudarsan;

       Just make sure that you add the Appeon_WorkArounds.PBL to your application's Target library list. You should be able to locate this library in the "C:\inetpub\wwwroot\appeon\developTempFile\appeon_workarounds" folder. Then the Class assignment should work properly.

HTH

Hi Chris,



Thanks, for your awesome answer. I ran into another problem. I had my class and the dll is in the target folder. But when I tries to call the functions I am not able to get the result.



My .Net Class



Imports System.IO

Imports System.Text.RegularExpressions



Public Class TelsFileProcessor



    Public Function GetNumRecordsSynchronous(ByVal filePath As String) As Integer

        Dim numRecords As Integer = 0

        Dim regex As New Regex("(\bNUMBER\b)(\s*)(=)(\s*)(')(\s*)(\d+)(\s*)(')")



        Using reader As New StreamReader(filePath)

            'count lines until we find [TRAILER]

            Dim line As String = reader.ReadLine()

            While Not line Is Nothing

                If 0 = String.CompareOrdinal(line.Trim(), "[TRAILER]") Then

                    Exit While

                End If

                numRecords += 1

                line = reader.ReadLine()

            End While



            'look for line with the following pattern: NUMBER = ' 12345 '

            line = reader.ReadLine()

            While Not line Is Nothing

                Dim matches = regex.Matches(line)

                If matches.Count = 1 Then

                    If Convert.ToInt32(matches(0).Groups.Item(7).Value) = numRecords Then

                        Return numRecords

                    Else

                        Return -1

                    End If

                End If

                line = reader.ReadLine()

            End While

        End Using

        Return -1

    End Function



   Please help me in resolving the error.



    Public Sub CopyRecordsSynchronous(ByVal srcFilePath As String, ByVal dstFilePath As String)

        If File.Exists(dstFilePath) Then

            File.Delete(dstFilePath)

        End If

        Dim recordCount As Integer = GetNumRecordsSynchronous(srcFilePath)

        Using reader As New StreamReader(srcFilePath)

            Using writer As New StreamWriter(dstFilePath)

                For i As Integer = 1 To recordCount

                    Dim line = reader.ReadLine()

                    writer.WriteLine(line)

                Next

            End Using

        End Using

    End Sub



End Class



My Powerbuilder Code:



// Define Variables



long lRet



int iResult



string strError



appeondotnetcomponent comcaller



 



 



//create appeondotnetcomponent instance and set properties



 



comcaller = create appeondotnetcomponent



comcaller.componenttype = '1'



comcaller.typelib = 'Utility.dll'



comcaller.classdescript = 'TelsFileProcessor'



any paramlist[]



 



paramlist[1] = as_destination_file



paramlist[2] = as_insert_file



 



 



//invoke component method



 



lRet = comcaller.of_execinterface("CopyRecordsSynchronous" , paramlist)



 



if Integer(lRet) = 0 then



iResult = comcaller.ReturnValue



 



else



 



strError = comcaller.ErrorText



MessageBox("Error",strError)



end if



 



My file Copy is not working.

Hi Sudarsan;



  Did you get a chance to trace what is happening in your .NET component when its called via the "of_execinterface" method?

Hi Chris,



My Code works with OLE one as below:



// Calling the .Net COM Component for File Copy

OLEObject fileProcessor

fileProcessor = CREATE OLEObject

fileProcessor.ConnectToNewObject("Utility.TelsFileProcessor")

 lb_ret = fileProcessor.CopyRecordsSynchronous(this.is_samin_destination_files, this.is_samin_insert_files)

DESTROY fileProcessor
