Using Airlines SDK with Visual C++

Before Airlines SDK can be used with a Visual C++ project, the SDK COM classes must be added, the DLLs opened, and the Include path expanded. These steps must be repeated for every Visual C++ project using Airlines SDK. Once completed, the Airlines SDK COM classes are accessible within that project. A simple test project is recommended to ensure full functionality before project development.

Note Attachmate e-Vantage Airlines SDK objects require Visual C++ v. 5.0 or later. Using SDK objects in Visual C++ applications requires a fundamental knowledge of the COM architecture.

Using the SDK with Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC)

Note The following steps are based on Visual C++ v. 6.0.
To include the Airlines SDK COM objects in Visual C++
    Create a new MFC project, or open an existing project.

  1. From the View menu, select ClassWizard.

  2. On the Message Maps tab of the MFC ClassWizard dialog box, click Add Class, and then select From A Type Library.

  3. Access the Attachmate e-Vantage Airlines SDK installation directory. By default, the SDK is installed in:

    C:\Program Files\Attachmate\evSDK.

  4. On the Import From Type Library dialog box, select ScreenFactory.dll and then click Open.

  5. On the Confirm Classes dialog box, click OK to confirm the selected object.

  6. Repeat the previous steps to also import Mutable.dll.

    The selected objects appear on the ClassView tab.

  7. Add the Attachmate e-Vantage Airlines SDK Include directory (containing evSDKDefs.h) to your Include path. The default location of this directory is:

    C:\Program Files\Attachmate\evSDK\Include

  8. Add evSDKDefs.h to your project.
