Calling Client-side DLLs

Calling a DLL on the display host requires special notation. The name of the DLL called on the display host must begin with "@[DISPLAY]:". For example, to call a DLL named MYLIB on the client, you would use the following code:


The file path for a called DLL is relative to the directory that contains acuthin.exe. For example, if acuthin.exe is located in C:\Micro Focus\Acucbl8xx\AcuGT\bin, then the following call:


refers to C:\Micro Focus\Acucbl8xx\AcuGT\bin\MYAPP\MYLIB.DLL. Note that the CALL statement ignores CODE_PREFIX when it searches for DLLs on the client. CODE_PREFIX is applied only to actions on the application host.
