VB6 & MTS - Context Object Errors

VB6 & MTS - Context Object Errors

VB6 & MTS - Context Object Errors

Whenever I use any methods connected to the Context Object, VB issues me a "Object variable or with block variable not defined" error. I have set references to MTS inside of VeeBee, but to no avail - what might be the cause of this ?

Many thanks

RE: VB6 & MTS - Context Object Errors

Often the problem is using:
oMyObject = something
instead of:
Set oMyObject = something


RE: VB6 & MTS - Context Object Errors

Another problem is using the new keyword when setting an object variable.

To use MTS you have to instantiate objects using the CreateObject function

Eg. Instead of
Set obj = new object
set obj = CreateObject(object)

RE: VB6 & MTS - Context Object Errors

You really should be using the CreateInstance keyword when creating MTS objects, for objects NOT controlled by MTS such as ADO recordsets etc you can use "CreateObject" or even better the "New" keyword.Using "CreateObject" when creating MTS objects can cause problems - especially scalability ones.Oddly enough in the new implementation of COM+ (COM+ promises to unite COM with MTS!)to run in Windows 2000 - "Createobject" again becomes the preffered method - funny old world isn't it? :-o)
