Communicating with Addin from external program

I have just started looking at your ADdin program and was wondering how can I send data to it from an external program. for example, if I have the following;

TMyTest = class(TadxAddin, IMyTest)
private

protected
function Get_AdvisorCode: PChar; safecall;
procedure Set_AdvisorCode(Value: PChar); safecall;
public
property AdvisorCode: PChar read Get_AdvisorCode write Set_AdvisorCode;
end;

TAddInModule = class(TadxCOMAddInModule)
private
FAdvisorCode : string;
end;

How can I set AdvisorCode from another app (called MySendingApp)

As you can tell, I am also a newbie to COM.

Regards
Phil

Hi Phil,

I think I'd better create an example for you. It will be ready in a couple of hours.

Thanks for that. It has certainly given me some ideas of where to go.
