_com_ptr_t::GetActiveObject

 

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

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( );  

Parameters

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.
