Title: External Windows DLL

Hi,

it's it possible to make a frontcall for calling a function from an external DLL under windows ?

Regards

There used to be a section on this in the GDC documentation under https://4js.com/online_documentation/fjs-gdc-3.20.16-manual-html/#gdc-topics/c_gdc_front_end_extensions_2.html but it appears to have been removed in the 3.00 version of the docs, not sure why it was removed.

Goto the archive section of the website and find the 2.50 GDC documentation, and look for section labelled "Front End Extensions".  Effectively you have to create a wrapper for the dll you want to interact with.

the section I was looking for was moved from GDC to BDL documentation, see here in latest BDL docs http://4js.com/online_documentation/fjs-fgl-manual-html/index.html#fgl-topics/c_fgl_frontcalls_user_ext_gdc.html
