The Address of a Variable

THE ADDRESS OF A VARIABLE VB5 includes a built-in VarPtr function (see tip "Use the Object Browser to Discover Undocumented Features"), but this function isn't available in VB4. The VB4 runtime library does include this function, but you must declare it first: #If Win16 Then Declare Function VarPtr Lib _ "VB40016.DLL" (variable As Any) _ As Long #Else Declare Function VarPtr Lib _ "VB40032.DLL" (variable As Any) _ As Long #End If This function is useful when passing an external API routine a Type structure, and one of its fields is the address of another variable or record.
