Takes an Integer or a Ptr, converting both to Integer. For use with declares.


Use this class when you need to be able to pass both Integers and pointers to the same declare.

Consider a method in your Xojo code called Foo that accepts an OSHandle as a parameter. That method could then create a declare that accepts an Integer. When you call the declare method, you could then pass it a variable of type OSHandle which could have been assigned either an Integer or a Ptr.

Sample code

To use this, declare a parameter as OSHandle:

MyMethod(handle As OSHandle)

You can then pass in either an Integer or a Ptr:

Var handle As OSHandle = 5
