     This sample project demonstrates how to do two things. First, it shows how to make a DLL. Second, it shows how to load and use a DLL during run-time in your application. Why would you want to do this? Well, you can add programmatic functionality on the fly without having to even restart your application, let alone reboot Windows. It's a very cool concept. Anyway, I couldn't find an example of this anywhere, so I am posting it in hopes that it may be of some use to someone else who is looking for the same thing. If you see any improvements that can be made to this code, please let me know.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
