I’m working with a legacy Active-X control that needs a window handle. But when I pass in Window1.Handle, I receive the error:
Parameter "hWnd_Param" expects type Ptr, but this is type Integer.
How do I get a pointer to the Window handle?
Not an answer, but curious…
How old is it?
Is it expecting a 32bit value and getting a 64bit one?
Ah! Didn’t realize you could cast to a pointer that way. Thanks!

It’s an old control, but on Windows I really only compile for 32-bit anyway, so no big deal there.
Integer and Ptr are both 32 or 64-bit depending on the app’s bit number.
Agreed, but I was curious about whether the ActiveX was 32 bit while the app was 64
that will simply not work.
