Hi

I am trying to use the COleSafeArray with the following code

COleSafeArray sa;

sa.CreateOneDim(VT_R8, 10);

long l;

for(l = 0; l < 10; l++)
{
      VARIANT val;
      VariantInit(&val);

      val.vt = VT_R8;
      val.dblVal = 33.45;
      sa.PutElement(&l, &val);
}

CString s;
CString ss;

for(l = 0; l < 10; l++)
{
      VARIANT val;
      VariantInit(&val);
      sa.GetElement(&l, &val);

      switch(val.vt)
                {
                case VT_R8:
                       TRACE("DOUBLE %2.2f\n", val.dblVal);
                       break;

                case VT_BSTR:
                       TRACE("BSTR %s\n",(CString)val.bstrVal);
                       break;

                case VT_R4:
              TRACE("FLOAT %2.2f\n",  val.fltVal);
                        break;

                case VT_EMPTY:
                       TRACE("<empty>\n");
                        break;
                }
}

The trace output is

DOUBLE -92559631349317831000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000.00

instead of VARIANT does it work with a COleVariant.

Hi there!
I think u would use like:
------
COleSafeArray sa;

sa.CreateOneDim(VT_R8, 10);

long l;

for(l = 0; l < 10; l++)
{
    double val = (33.45);
    sa.PutElement(&l, &val);
}

CString s;
CString ss;

for(l = 0; l < 10; l++)
{
    double t;
    sa.GetElement(&l, &t);
}
------
or u can ask me more

Good luck!!!

I have tried the CreateOneDim option with the same results I'm afraid.
The problem here is I am using a Charting component which requires
that the ColeSafeArray be defined using Create(...)

I'll have a look again though.

Oh,you are careless,the mistake you have taken is that you defin the "VARIANT val" twice,and every time you define it,it is a local variable!
So you shoule define it at first.My code is here,and it can be executed correctly on my computer!
Wish you good luck!
I'm also use COleSafeArray these days,are you familiar with Excel Automation with MFC,I wish we can exchange our experience.

COleSafeArray sa;
sa.CreateOneDim(VT_R8, 10);
long lindex[] = {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9};
long l;
VARIANT val;
for(l = 0; l < 10; l++)
{
      
      VariantInit(&val);
      
      val.vt = VT_R8;
      val.dblVal = 33.45;
      sa.PutElement(&lindex[l], &val);
}

CString s;
CString ss;

for(l = 0; l < 10; l++)
{
      
      VariantInit(&val);
      sa.GetElement(&lindex[l], &val);
      
      switch(val.vt)
      {
                case VT_R8:
                       TRACE("DOUBLE %2.2f\n", val.dblVal);
                       break;

                case VT_BSTR:
                       TRACE("BSTR %s\n",(CString)val.bstrVal);
                       break;

                case VT_R4:
             TRACE("FLOAT %2.2f\n",  val.fltVal);
                        break;

                case VT_EMPTY:
                       TRACE("<empty>\n");
                        break;
                }
}

CAUTION.
If that is the problem try the initialisation with something like

for(l = 0; l < 10; l++)
{
     
     VariantInit(&val);
     
     val.vt = VT_R8;
     val.dblVal = 33.45 * (double)l;  //DIFFERENT values into each array member
     sa.PutElement(&lindex[l], &val);
}

then check what actually comes back
