Tip for using TextDynamic in Visual FoxPro

[Top]  [Chapter]  [Previous]  [Next]

If You cannot access the interfaces in Visual FoxPro directly, You can use the method GETINTERFACE:




ospell=GETINTERFACE(someform.textdynamic.SpellCtrl, "{8A8763C7-D866-4D33-A6E9-FF17C008D57B}", "WPTDynInt.ocx")

Getting access to special-interfaces using VFP


To get full access to the interfaces of some parts of the textdynamic object you have to use GETINTERFACE(). The following codesnippet shows as an example the access to the PageSize via the WPTDYNINT.IWPPageSize Interface. In this example loRTF is an instance of the WPTDYNINT mainobject.



     loPageSize = GETINTERFACE(loRTF.Memo.PageSize,"{00CBDEC6-0659-484C-8E9A-79EEE052CE8D}","WPTDynInt.ocx")

     WITH loPageSize










RELEASE loPageSize    



Hints for this example:


-          Using a variable declaration with AS <interface-name> will give you intellisense support on your object showing the interface-props and methods. Which makes life much easier when typing.


-          Be aware of using the correct Reference-object as first param of the GETINTERFACE(…) Function. Example: loRTF.MEMO.PageSize will give you access to the interface of the first editor’s pagesize. On the contrary loRTF.MEMO2.PageSize will present the interface and content of the second Editor. Especially with Interfaces like CurrAttr / CurrPar etc. you have to be sure what content you actually get.


-          Be sure to clear and release the object you created with the interface. GarbageCollection will most likely clear everything, but if not, things will get pretty messy. So null-it and release it when you’re done with it.
