In this session, we discussed about how to create DLLs, how to use them in Automation 360 and their real world applications.
Building a DLL
To build a DLL, you will need access to an IDE such as Visual Studio , knowledge of C# language and the supported data types in DLL functions within the Automation 360 platform.
While creating a DLL in Visual Studio, select the project type Class Library (.Net framework) and the preferred language to build a DLL is C#. Dipendra showed us how to build a simple DLL that can find the minimum and maximum among the 2 input numbers and also from a list of numbers. You can download the DLL code (see attachment) to try it out. Also, you can see the code from the screenshots below.
If you already have existing DLLs built on .NET framework or if you have a team of .NET developers in your team, then you can build powerful DLLs and use them in the Automation Anywhere platform. However, the preferred method to extend Automation 360 platform capabilities is to build native custom Java packages using Automation Anywhere SDK.
To know about our upcoming meetups, here are the meetup group links in different cities for you to join. We look forward to meeting you in person once the conditions get better, till then let’s continue to meet online. We want to make sure the content at our meetup groups effectively meets the needs of our audience. In that regard, please feel free to let us know at email@example.com, the topics, concepts, and capabilities you’d like to see in the upcoming meetings.
Can we create a DLL using other dll for library?
