source (C++)

On a class, specifies the COM object's source interfaces for connection points. On a property or method, indicates that the member returns an object or VARIANT that is a source of events.

[ source( 
   interfaces 
) ]

interfaces

One or more interfaces that you specify when you apply the source attribute to a class. This parameter is not used when source is applied to a property or method.

The source C++ attribute has the same functionality as the source MIDL attribute.

You can use the default attribute to specify the default source interface for an object.

   HRESULT get_I([out, retval]long *i);
};
