OLE novice needs help
Posted on 1999-06-29
I need to open an(y) Ole document by its filename. I tried to use TOleContainer to open it in its server, but TOLEContainer seems to need a parent window. I do not want to show the TOLEContainer, and also, the code for opening this file should not be placed at the GUI level, so I cannot, for this and several other reasons, provide a parent window. I need both opening of a new OLE document by the standard dialog, as well as opening from existing files.
Can I do this with TOLEContainer without providing owner & parent? -Or is there another smart way?
