In this session we will walk through the process of creating a .net visual assembly in PowerBuilder.net and then using it from within a Visual Studio.net application.?
Then we will look at creating a visual control in Visual Studio.net and packaging it so that it can be used in a PowerBuilder Classic application.?

Presenter: Bruce Armstrong?

The previous versions of Windows up to XP were using the Active X control CAPICOM, that could be accessed with OLE Automation through PowerBuilder. From Windows XP versions, CAPICOM was replaced by the Smart Card SDK.??

Bruce Armstrong will show you how to communicate with this Smart Card SDK from PowerBuilder through different operations.

You will learn how to communicate with the card, validate the user's PIN, determine who the card says the user is and read the certificate Subject Name, or other certificate data.

Using code examples and clear explanations, Bruce will guide you through this tutorial to communicate successfully with a Smart Card.
