In order to use this dll file you have to reference it in your

  1. Main menu in VB - choose 'Project'

  4. If the Cards32.dll is not listed hit 'browse' to locate it.

Now that you have it referenced by your project you can use it in your code.
In 'General' section of your form add the line

    ' you can use whatever name you want
    Dim TheDeck as clsCards


    Private Sub Form_Load()
        Set TheDeck = New clsCards

        'retrieve the image of the card

        Set Image1(0).Picture = TheDeck.SetCardImage(0)

' set the style of the back of the card
        TheDeck.SetCardStyle (0)
        ' retrieve the image of the back of the card

        Set Image2(0).Picture = TheDeck.SetCardBack
        ' retrieve the image of the Top of the card

        Set imgTop(0).Picture = TheDeck.SetCardTop
        ' retrieve the image of the Side of the card

        Set imgSide(0).Picture = TheDeck.SetCardSide
    End Sub
