hi,
I've created an atl dll project, added a lite control to it. I would like to pass parameters to the control like this:
<object id=....>
<param name="Message" value="Hello word...">
</object>
How to get the parameter value in the component?

You could use a SAX parsers to parse out the values...

Microsofts SAX parseser Reference:

parameters are infact properties of the object. i.e. you just add property to your control, and from HTML you can set that property using PARAMS tag.

No need at all for parsing or whatever.

Try adding a new property say MyString (type BSTR), with get and put functions.

In HTML add

<param name="MyString" value="Hello word...">

and thats all ...

it does not work....
the put code of the property haven't been called in ie....
STDMETHODIMP CMyObject::put_MyString(BSTR newVal)
{
     AFX_MANAGE_STATE(AfxGetStaticModuleState())
     AfxMessageBox("put_MyString");
     return S_OK;
}
no dialogbox....
why?

there doesnt seem to be a problem with what you have described so far.

perhaps you can try to put

::MessageBox instead of AfxMessageBox, though this should not be an issues but just for trying out.

Another way to test  it to put a property of type VARIANT.

I've tryed the VARIANT, does not work at all. The debugger stops in the constructor, but does not stop in the put_MyString. If I set it from javascript, it shows the messagebox...
Could you send me a working source code, please???
