Oh, by the way, note that you need a relatively fast Internet
link to view the slides online due to their size.  Their graphics
is intense!

> Subject: Online example of a Visual Basic program running an Ada program
> Hi, Everyone,
> Just as a follow-up to our discussion on Team Ada, I thought you would
> be interested in this set of course slides:
> I just finished including a series on a Visual Basic program running
> an Ada program.  It includes full-color screen displays, the Visual
> Basic source code (all 1 line of it!), the Visual Basic images,
> the Ada source code, and the results (screen displays showing the
> VB program running and the Ada program running).
> So, in the Microsoft Windows world, you can see how easy it is to
> write applications which use Visual Basic to provide the front-end
> and Ada to provide the engine.  For those of you who have not seen
> VB before, it also shows you what VB is like and how the IDE is
> integrated with the procedural language.
> The complete version of this example (with source code) will be
> on the upcoming ASE Update 2 CDROM and the ASE websites at
> Walnut Creek CDROM, the Microsoft Academic Cooperative, and
> Kennesaw State University.
> Enjoy!
> Rick
