    Passing an array to a DLL

    I'm having trouble figuring out how to pass an array (buffer) to a DLL. Currently I have the code taking in a list of a string of parameters for a command line call:

    m_processMethodInfo.Invoke(m_checkObject, list.ToArray<object[]>());

    Is there any way to pass in an array (buffer) to the Invoke() function? Or possibly add an array to the list already created?

    Is the DLL a COM dll?

    No it's not a COM object, it's a .net assembly.

    Is there a better way than using the invoke method?

    Yes. Add a referenced to the assembly in the project where you wish to use the dll.

    And in the source code, create a class instance and call a method (the same as you would for a class that is directly in your project). You'll need to also add a using xxxnamespace; where you are using the code from the assembly.

    Thanks, but I figured a way to do what I was trying to do.

    It's similar to the example code here:
