How to get methods / properties / values of an object

Looking for a way to get and list all the methods / properties / values of any given object ...

Example binding strings :

GetObject(“WinNT://MyDomain/Idaho,computer”)
GetObject(“WinNT://MyComputer/TestGroup,group”)
GetObject(“WinNT://MyDC/MyDomain/JSmith,user”)
GetObject(“LDAP://cn=Test2,cn=Users,dc=MyDomain,dc=com”)

A listing of the property types available in the WinNT bind string would be nice too (computer,group,user,LanManServe etc.)

Not a VB guru yet, so hope this isn't too confusing ... ask away if you're not sure ...

If you don't have the TypeLibs available to you, you can always check the type of the object and then search MSDN for it (usually documented).

For example...

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim objTest As Object
    'late-binding.. no way to know properties/methods (interface) ahead
    'of time...
    Set objTest = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
    'check it's TypeName.. for IE, it's "IWebBrowser2".. "I" is just for
    '"Interface" which defines the properties/methods...
    MsgBox TypeName(objTest)
    'now.. go to http://msdn.microsoft.com and search for "IWebBrowser2"...
    'you'll come across a link of:
    'http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/browser/webbrowser/reference/ifaces/iwebbrowser2/iwebbrowser2.asp?frame=true
    'which documents mostly every property/method..
   
    'better "quit" the IE instance.. :-)
    Call objTest.Quit
End Sub
