I want to call a function of a Column Handler / InfoTip ActiveX.

Its of Embird Embroidery Software.

The software created a explorer column handler, to show embroidery file stitches count and other file  data.

How do i call this function to get the result string?

or how can i call the following method to get the resulting string?:

this seems to be a CLSID id,Index (of column handler)

Here a InfoTip Registry Data of a .emb file, registered as: EMBIRd.file.emb under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT

InfoTip REG_SZ "prop:Name;{DB8853E3-33CC-447E-84AA-FC319381A97B}6;{DB8853E3-33CC-447E-84AA-FC319381A97B}10;Type;Size;create;write;access;DocTitle;DocSubject;DocAuthor;DocCategory;DocComments"

QuickTip REG_SZ "prop:{DB8853E3-33CC-447E-84AA-FC319381A97B}6;Size"
TileInfo REG_SZ "prop:{DB8853E3-33CC-447E-84AA-FC319381A97B}6;Size"
