OLE Auto Wang


I need to Automate Wang Imaging from a C++ program, I use Borland C++ V5.02,
therefore I can't use the high level stuff like CreateObject("Wang.Application").

   So, I assume that the only way is:

      CLSIDFromProgID
      CoCreateInstance

      theFunc = "Open"
      GetIDsOfNames(...&theFunc,.. )
      Invoke->etc etc....

But what are the names of the Properties and Methods
and the parameters to each Method ???

Is there not a Type Library for Wang Imaging ? ( ?.TLB )


Thanks
Peet

what c++ compiler you use?
If you use vc and MFC then you can use classwizard to generate the wrap class for that component.All you need is to specify the control.
If you only use VC without MFC,you can use #import directive to import all definition and ,better,use ATL to assist you.

Otherwise,you'v got to examine the registry by tools or manually.

============================
It should have.try to specify the .dll as the #import object.

Free to ask

The compiler is Borland C++ V5.02,
but I don't use OWL, MFC or any framework. All GUI elements are created via the Win API.

This object has been used as an example in the book "Learning DCOM" by Thuan L. Thai published by O'Reilly. You can get the source code for the book at ftp://ftp.oreilly.com/published/oreilly/nutshell/dcom/DCOMcode.zip

If you can't get access to the book, or the code is not clear (Chapter 8 uses the object most), I'll try and help you out.
