Function Reference


GUICtrlCreateObj

Creates an ActiveX control in the GUI.

GUICtrlCreateObj ( ObjectVar, left, top [, width [, height]] )

Parameters

ObjectVar A variable pointing to a previously opened object
left The left side of the control. If -1 is used then left will be computed according to GUICoordMode.
top The top of the control. If -1 is used then top will be computed according to GUICoordMode.
width [optional] The width of the control (default is the previously used width).
height [optional] The height of the control (default is the previously used height).

Return Value

Success: the identifier (controlID) of the new control.
Failure: 0.

Remarks

This function attempts to embed an 'ActiveX Control' or a 'Document Object' inside the GUI.
Not every control can be embedded. They must at least support an 'IDispatch' interface.

See the Obj/COM Reference for more information about Objects.

'Document Objects' will only be visible if the Windows style $WS_CLIPCHILDREN has been used in GUICreate().

The GUI functions GUICtrlRead() and GUICtrlSet have no effect on this control. The object can only be controlled using 'methods' or 'properties' on the $ObjectVar.
