dllimport


MarshalDirectiveException


I would like use unmanaged code from C in C#.
I built a DLL with C code with this functions:
struct GetPluginData
{
int data[22];
};
DLLEXPORT extern "C" __declspec (dllexport) GetPluginData GetDataArray(int number);
In C# I've got this code:
[StructLayoutAttribute(LayoutKind.Sequential, Pack=1)]
public unsafe struct GetPluginData
{
/// int[22]
[MarshalAsAttribute(UnmanagedType.ByValArray, SizeConst = 22, ArraySubType = UnmanagedType.I4)]
public int[] data;
}
[DllImport("RBRPlugin.dll", CallingConvention = CallingConvention.StdCall, EntryPoint = "GetDataArray")]
[return: MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.Struct)]
public static extern GetPluginData GetDataArray(int number);
In button event or othe place code, I wrote this:
GetPluginData tes = GetDataArray(1);
And I'm getting the error: The type signature of this method is not PInvoke compatible.
I'm looking for information throught google, but no result found...
Thanks in advance!
Problems:
CallingConvertion.StdCall is incorrect, you didn't declare the function __stdcall in the C code. Make it CallingConvention.Cdecl.
Remove the [return: MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.Struct)] attribute, it is incorrect. UnmanagedType.Struct is rather unintuitive and not actually used on structs.
Remove the Pack attribute property, it is very unlikely to be correct albeit harmless here. Default packing in the C compiler is 8 unless you used #pragma pack or the /Zp compile option.
The pinvoke marshaller doesn't support returning a struct as a function return value that contains an embedded array. The source of the exception. Declare it as fixed int data[22] instead.
Here better, the correct code is:
[DllImport("RBRPlugin.dll", CallingConvention = CallingConvention.Cdecl, EntryPoint = "GetDataArray")]
public static extern GetPluginData GetDataArray(int number);
[StructLayoutAttribute(LayoutKind.Sequential)]
public struct GetPluginData
{
public unsafe fixed int data[22];
}
public GetPluginData temp1 = new GetPluginData();
private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
GetPluginData test = GetDataArray(1);
temp1 = test;
unsafe
{
fixed (GetPluginData* p = &temp1)
{
p->data[0] = 1;
}
}
}
