Dynamic Data Studio is a general purpose Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) tool which has features useful to both computer users and program developers. It comes with a universal DDE client program which you use to make a server send out its data. With these programs you can -
Dynamic Data Studio has four components, each with its own output and control window.
DDSTUDIO acts as an intermediary, allowing otherwise incompatible programs to communicate. Service and topic names can be changed, allowing DDE sources with fixed names to supply data under any service and topic name desired. The server timeout characteristics are under user control so can be adjusted to suit the client program.
DDSTUDIO writes data to a file so that it can be played back later, or analysed by other software. Timing information is kept, so it is possible to re-create exactly the data supplied by any DDE server. The recording can be in plain text, readable and editable by the user, even if it is binary data. The file format is described in the help file.
DDE data becomes available for recording when a server sends it in response to a request. You can use an existing client program to request the data, or the DDCLIENT.EXE program which comes with DDSTUDIO. Alternatively, you can write a Visual Basic program to act as a DDE client, using our DDClient ActiveX control.
DDSTUDIO is a DDE server playing back data from a file. The file may be one written by DDSTUDIO, or it may be one constructed by the user. DDSTUDIO can be made to mimic the data supply of almost any DDE server.
Monitoring DDE activity
DDSTUDIO monitors the DDE events specified by the user. This is a debugging feature primarily for program developers. It gives more readable and accurate information than the DDESPY program provided by Microsoft.
Download Dynamic Data Studio
Both 16 bit and 32 bit versions of all the programs are provided. The help file contains the information you need to decide which version to use according to circumstances. The download file is an installation program. When you run the program it installs both 16 and 32 versions, the help file and a readme file into the directory of your choice. A program group is created. The uninstall process removes the program group as well, unless you have added other icons or links by hand.
