Applies to:
@RISK Developer Kit 4.1

I'm building an application using the @RISK Developer Kit. Should I use the ActiveX interface or the DLL interface?

Use the object-oriented interface, which is meant for COM/ActiveX and .NET. The title of the manual refers to ActiveX, but there's a section in it that talks about using that interface with .NET. We don't support the DLL interface with .NET.

Do you have any C# examples of the @RISK Developer Kit?

Yes, after you install the Developer Edition of the RDK, you can find two examples in
C:\Program Files\Palisade\RDK4\DotNet\COMInteropAssembly\Examples\SimpleSimCSharp
C:\Program Files\Palisade\BDK4\DotNet\COMInteropAssembly\Examples\FitDensityCSharp

Those examples don't show graphing. Do you have any graphing examples in C#?

We have a Visual Basic .NET examples that does:
C:\Program Files\Palisade\RDK4\DotNet\COMInteropAssembly\Examples\GraphVB
The structure of the code in C# would be very similar.

An improved version of that example (still with Visual Basic), with better-looking graphs, is available as file GraphVB_PixelToTwipConversion.zip, accompanying this article.
