_com_ptr_t::GetActiveObject

Microsoft Specific

Attaches to an existing instance of an object given a CLSID or ProgID.

HRESULT GetActiveObject(
   const CLSID& rclsid 
) throw( );
HRESULT GetActiveObject(
   LPCWSTR clsidString 
) throw( );
HRESULT GetActiveObject(
   LPCSTR clsidStringA 
) throw( );

rclsid

The CLSID of an object.

clsidString

A Unicode string that holds either a CLSID (starting with "{") or a ProgID.

clsidStringA

A multibyte string, using the ANSI code page, that holds either a CLSID (starting with "{") or a ProgID.

These member functions call GetActiveObject to retrieve a pointer to a running object that has been registered with OLE and then queries for this smart pointer's interface type. The resulting pointer is then encapsulated within this _com_ptr_t object. Release is called to decrement the reference count for the previously encapsulated pointer. This routine returns the HRESULT to indicate success or failure.

  • GetActiveObject( rclsid )   Attaches to an existing instance of an object given a CLSID.

  • GetActiveObject( clsidString )   Attaches to an existing instance of an object given a Unicode string that holds either a CLSID (starting with "{") or a ProgID.

  • GetActiveObject( clsidStringA )   Attaches to an existing instance of an object given a multibyte character string that holds either a CLSID (starting with "{") or a ProgID. Calls MultiByteToWideChar, which assumes that the string is in the ANSI code page rather than an OEM code page.
