How to find public methods for third-party ActiveX control?
Posted on 2004-11-24
I am working with an ActiveX control that was already installed on my system, already used in code, and works great. However, the current usage of the control does not use every method. I now want to know what other methods are available to me.
I am using PERL and do not know the first thing about Visual Studio .NET (which I understand contains ActiveX viewers that may do what I need). I have .NET available to me.
Here a code snippet that I am using (PERL):
$imaging = Win32::OLE->new('IC.ICImagingControl') or die "oops\n";
The activeX control acts as an interface to a FIREWIRE CAMERA that I have. You can see 6 different methods for the ActiveX control above. I only knew these existed because a previous programmer gave me code showing the methods. However, I know that there are at least 30 different methods for the ActiveX control from the product description. I do not have a password to read the online documentation from the supplier. How do I "see" or "expose" or "view" or "enumerate" the methods the activeX control provides to the programmer?
