COleClientItem::CreateFromFile

 

Call this function to create an embedded OLE item from a file.


      BOOL CreateFromFile(
   LPCTSTR lpszFileName,
   REFCLSID clsid = CLSID_NULL,
   OLERENDER render = OLERENDER_DRAW,
   CLIPFORMAT cfFormat = 0,
   LPFORMATETC lpFormatEtc = NULL 
);

lpszFileName

Pointer to the name of the file from which the OLE item is to be created.

clsid

Reserved for future use.

render

Flag specifying how the server will render the OLE item. For the possible values, see OLERENDER in the Windows SDK.

cfFormat

Specifies the Clipboard data format to be cached when creating the OLE item.

lpFormatEtc

Pointer to a FORMATETC structure used if render is OLERENDER_FORMAT or OLERENDER_DRAW. Provide a value for this parameter only if you want to specify additional format information beyond the Clipboard format specified by cfFormat. If you omit this parameter, default values are used for the other fields in the FORMATETC structure.

Nonzero if successful; otherwise 0.

The framework calls this function from COleInsertDialog::CreateItem if the user chooses OK from the Insert Object dialog box when the Create from File button is selected.

For more information, see OleCreateFromFile, OLERENDER, and FORMATETC in the Windows SDK.
