Access Violation axctrls.pas

  I am using Delphi 5 to create an active form that runs inside of a webpage.  It runs fine 99% of the time.

However, I occasionally get an access violation on the following line in the axctrls.pas unit.

//...

function TActiveFormControl.ObjQueryInterface(const IID: TGUID; out Obj): HResult;
begin
  Result := S_OK;
  if not Control.GetInterface(IID, Obj) then  //<-------------- access violation on this line.
    Result := inherited ObjQueryInterface(IID, Obj);
end;

//...


Any ideas what could be causing this?

I have heard that there are activeX related bugs in Delphi5.  Can anyone confirm whether this is something that could be fixed with an upgrade to Delphi7?

If anyone has Delphi7, does the implementation of this function look differrent?

Thank you.

Here's the implementation of the function in Delphi 7

function TActiveFormControl.ObjQueryInterface(const IID: TGUID; out Obj): HResult;
begin
  Result := S_OK;
  if IsEqualGUID(IID, IUnknown) or not Control.GetInterface(IID, Obj) then
    Result := inherited ObjQueryInterface(IID, Obj);
end;

I'm not sure if that will solve your problem, but HTH

Thank you.

Yes, this looks differrent from the Delphi5 implementation:

function TActiveFormControl.ObjQueryInterface(const IID: TGUID; out Obj): HResult;
begin
  Result := S_OK;
  if not Control.GetInterface(IID, Obj) then
    Result := inherited ObjQueryInterface(IID, Obj);
end;

The access violation occurs at Control.GetInterface(IID, Obj). So, as long as the second half of the or statement does not get evaluated, it should be fine?

I will try using the delphi 7 version, and see how it works.

Using the delphi 7 version did not fix the problem.
