I am new to this so sorry if this is in the wrong forum.
I am trying to do the following:
Within progress code call an .NET console application that connects and transfers a file to an SFTP server.
I have used the Shell32.dll to call the ShellExecuteA which you can see in my code below. whilst this calls the EXE (Console application) I cannot see to pick up the return code from the EXE application. Depending on what happens I return an int from the EXE which I want to pick up in the calling process code so I can then complete further actions depentant on this returned int.
Can anyone help me with this as I cannot seem to find examples or use OS-Command to do what I require.
Many thanks in advance.
My code below -
PROCEDURE ShellExecuteA EXTERNAL "SHELL32.DLL": /*"C:\WINDOWS\System32\*/
DEF INPUT PARAM hWnd AS LONG NO-UNDO.
DEF INPUT PARAM lpOperation AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO.
DEF INPUT PARAM lpFile AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO.
DEF INPUT PARAM lpParameters AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO.
DEF INPUT PARAM lpDirectory AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO.
DEF INPUT PARAM nShowCmd AS LONG NO-UNDO.
DEF RETURN PARAM hInstance AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO.
DEF VAR sReturnCode AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO.
DEF VAR sNullString AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO.
DEF VAR sParam AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO.
/*Build up param string*/
Assign sParam = quoter(vcOutputFile) + " " +
quoter(vcRSAOutFile) + " " +
quoter(Company_UD.SFTPPassword) + " " +
quoter(Company_UD.SFTPUsername) + " " +
quoter(Company_UD.SFTPUrl) + " " +
RUN ShellExecuteA (INPUT 1,
You can also use System.Diagnostics.Process to run external application. This should easily give you the return value of the application.
The last param of the external procedure definition needs to be long:
DEF RETURN PARAM hInstance AS LONG NO-UNDO.
