I have created a COM object and call it as activex from a web page in javascript.
Is there a way to pass parameters by reference that will be occupied by the ActiveX object.
The only way I can get a value is:  as a - "[retval, out]"  --> means return value
My COM function signature: HRESULT GetProperties(                                    [in, out] BSTR pIn,                                    [out] ULONG* pOut1,                                    [out] ULONG* pOut2,                        
                                           [out,retval] BSTR* pOutRetVal);
pOut1 and pOut2 returns allways as 0 to the javascript.
My Javascript call:
var in, out1, out2, retVal;
var obj = new activexobject("AXname");
retVal = obj.GetProperties(in, out1, out2);

You will NOT be able to do that with javascript. However, vbscript supports pass by reference. Since you are dealing with ActiveX objects, I'm assuming you are dealing exclusively with IE. If so, try using vbscript.
