IObjectSafety Interface

Provides methods to get and set safety options.

IObjectSafety Members

GetInterfaceSafetyOptions Gets the safety options supported by an object and the safety options that are currently set for that object.
SetInterfaceSafetyOptions Returns whether an object is safe for initialization or scripting, as specified.


The IObjectSafety interface should be implemented by objects that have interfaces which support "untrusted" clients, such as scripts. It allows the owner of the object to specify which interfaces must be protected from "untrusted" use.

Examples of interfaces that might be protected in this way are: IID_IDispatch (safe for automating with untrusted automation client or script), IID_IPersist (safe for initializing with untrusted data), and IID_IActiveScript (safe for running untrusted scripts).
