Example of using a COM Object/ActiveX in FoxPro

I have a library that is available as a COM Object/ActiveX, I can make my way around FoxPro code ok but I don't have the foggiest idea of how to access a COM Object through FoxPro. Also in general my knowledge of COM Programming is very limited. So any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Each COM Object has its own set of properties and events which is specific for it. You have to look at the COM Object documentation for more details.

To use COM Object in VFP you may create a form and place AcxtiveX Control (OLE Control on it). When you place the object on form the list of available (registered) objects appear and you have to select the right one. Then you may click on the object and look at all its properties in Property window:
