LINESSAMPLE: Lines: OLE Automation Server that implements collections LINES is an OLE Automation server application that implements collections. LINES allows a collection on lines to be drawn on a pane using OLE Automation. It exposes the following objects. Application object: Properties
Pane Returns the pane in the drawing window.
CreateLine Returns a newly created Line object with no start or end point.
CreatePoint Returns a newly created Point object initialized to (0,0).
Pane object: Properties
Lines Returns a collection of all of the Line objects in the drawing.
Points Returns a collection of all of the Point objects in the drawing.
MaxX Returns the maximum visible X coordinate value in twips.
MaxY Returns the maximum visible Y coordinate value in twips.
Clear Removes all of the Lines and Points from the drawing and refreshes the client area. The result is a blank slate, as if the application had just been launched.
Refresh Clears the drawing area and redraws each of the lines in the Lines collection. Line object: Properties
Color An RGB color.
EndPoint A Point object inidcating the end point for the line.
StartPoint A Point object indicating the start point for the line.
Thickness A thickness, represented in twips.
Point object: Properties
Lines collection: Standard collection properties and methods. Objects that are added must be of type Line. Objects returned are of type Line.
Add and Remove cause redrawing of the pane.
Adding a line causes two points to be added to the Points collection.
Removing a line may cause one or more points to be removed from the points collection. Points collection: Standard collection properties and methods. Objects returned are of type Point.
This collection does not allow addition and removal of members.
The Points collection does not have duplicates. If there are two lines in the drawing
which share an end point (x, y), (x, y) only appears in the collection once.
The sample the following features:
- Supports dual interfaces which allows access of automation properties and
methods through vtable binding and through IDispatch.
· Provides Rich Error information for vtable-binding controllers. This is does by implementing ISupportErrorInfo and using IErrorInfo.
· Implements 2 collections. · Implements active object registration using RegisterActiveObject and RevokeActiveObject. · Implements correct shut-down behavior. · Includes a .reg file which contains Lines.Application as progID. · When created for automation, is invisible initially.
