[appobject]

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

The following code shows a simple class definition preceded by an attribute block that includes appobject:

// cpp_attr_ref_appobject.cpp
// compile with: /LD
#include <windows.h>
[module(name="MyLib", uuid="f1ce17f0-a5df-4d26-95f6-0a122197ac5b")];

[object, uuid="905de6db-7a12-45ab-9f8b-b39f5112f010"]
__interface ICustom {};

[coclass, appobject,uuid="00395340-745f-4b69-bd58-e2921452b9fc"]
class A : public ICustom {
   int i;
};
