Hi Folks
This is (I thing) a very simple question, I am sorry posting such a dumb question, but I've been stuck for days trying to find a solution :(

How do I return a string pointer from a library, I tryed pushing it in the stuck, but all I get is an empty string, tryed even to pass it in a register, the result is the same.

Here is some code:

mov ecx, offset message
push ecx

pop ecx
mov hMsg,ecx
MsgBox2 hWnd,ADDR hMsg,ADDR AppName,MB_OK

Best Regards

Return the pointer in eax and set up a small proc in your library
GetPointer proc

mov eax,OFFSET string
GetPointer endp

invoke GetPointer
mov pString,eax

This should work OK

BTW MsgBox2 hWnd,ADDR hMsg,ADDR AppName,MB_OK the ADDR is wrong you are already returning an address.

MsgBox2 hWnd, hMsg,ADDR AppName,MB_OK

returns an ERROR ( error A2032: invalid use of register).

MsgBox2 hWnd, hMsg,offset AppName,MB_OK


lea eax, AppName
MsgBox2 hWnd, hMsg,eax,MB_OK

Depends on whether hMsg is a local or a global variable. Anyway I think you got the error because Msgbox2 is a marco.

Thanx dankey & roticv, I couldn't get MsgBox2 to work with registers, it needs ADDR XXX as a parameter, I am giving up MsgBox2 and use MessageBox insted.
The pointer pass from library worked fine, My Project is still not done "I'LL BE BACK" with more Questions :).

Best Regards
