IObjectWithSite interface

Provides simple objects with a lightweight siting mechanism (lighter than IOleObject).

Members

The IObjectWithSite interface inherits from the IUnknown interface. IObjectWithSite also has these types of members:

Methods

The IObjectWithSite interface has these methods.

MethodDescription
GetSite

Gets the last site set with IObjectWithSite::SetSite. If there is no known site, the object returns a failure code.

SetSite

Provides the site's IUnknown pointer to the object.

 

Remarks

Often, an object must communicate directly with a container site that is managing the object. Outside of IOleObject::SetClientSite, there is no generic means through which an object becomes aware of its site. The IObjectWithSite interface provides a siting mechanism. This interface should only be used when IOleObject is not already in use. By using IObjectWithSite, a container can pass the IUnknown pointer of its site to the object through SetSite. Callers can also get the latest site passed to SetSite by using GetSite.
