The framework calls this member function to obtain ambient property values from a window that contains OLE controls.

virtual BOOL OnAmbientProperty( 
   COleControlSite* pSite, 
   DISPID dispid, 
   VARIANT* pvar  


Pointer to the site of the control that requested the ambient property.


The dispatch ID of the requested ambient property.


Pointer to a caller-allocated VARIANT structure, through which the ambient property's value will be returned.

TRUE if the ambient property is supported; FALSE if not.

Override this function to alter the default ambient property values returned by an OLE control container to its controls. Any ambient property requests not handled by an overriding function should be forwarded to the base class implementation.
