long Connect()


You must use this command to connect the SlinkX ActiveX Control to the SlinkeServ server. This is necessary before any of the other SlinkX methods or properties can be used. In the current version, calls to certain methods and properties such as SlinkX.AddDevice, SlinkX.AddDeviceText, SlinkX.NumSlinkes, SlinkX.ReportNoMatch will automatically connect to the server if you have not done so already. This was done to maintain backward compatibility with programs which used older versions of SlinkX. This functionality may be removed in a later version.

Example (Visual Basic)

rem Connect before using any othe methods or properties
result = Slinkx.Connect()
