TclBridge is a powerful component designed to seemlessly integrate
Tcl/Tk with any ActiveX capable
language (such as Microsoft Visual Basic or any of the Microsoft
This component is fully multi-threaded and thread-safe (each interpreter has it's own thread).
Additionally, full Tcl/Tk stubs support has
been added. This component should work with any version of Tcl/Tk 8.3.2 or higher
(including TclPro 1.4.1 or higher).
Tcl/Tk 8.4.0 is now installed with this component for your convenience.
Multiple Tcl interpreters can be easily created, used, and destroyed.
In addition, there is a simple yet powerful facility that allows Tcl to invoke YOUR custom ActiveX components.
You simply specify the Tcl command name to add, the instance or
progID of the
COM object to call, the method name to
call, and the "clientData" (or cookie) you want to receive when called by the specified Tcl interpreter.
In short, Tcl commands are transparently mapped to COM method calls that you control in a fully reentrant,
thread-safe manner. Command arguments are handled automatically either as one long string or as
separate strings (can be toggled dynamically).
Please refer to the documentation for more information.
Full Tk support.
Stable asynchronous evaluation.
Special debugging support, such as the ability to use multiple debuggers at once, such as Visual Basic and TclPro (a very powerful combination) and other diagnostic functionality.
TCL2COM, which allows Tcl scripts to utilize any ActiveX object that supports automation using TclBridge.
TCL2ASP, a prototype component which allows easy integration with Microsoft IIS using TclBridge.
VBS2TCL, a prototype component which allows easy integration with Microsoft VBScript. Due to the limitations of Microsoft VBScript (MSKB Q197957), TclBridge does not work with Microsoft VBScript without VBS2TCL.
