Access COM objects "by name"

Recommended Posts

water

To make my script more flexible and reduce the needed lines of code I would like to pass parts of the objectname as parameters to a function.

Is it possible to create the name of the object to access "on the fly"?

The following example is just to illustrate what I'm talking about - it doesn't work:

Global $oExcel = ObjCreate("Excel.Application")
$sObject = "ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(1)"
$oExcel.$sObject.Select()

Is this somehow possible with AutoIt?

hmmm, maybe something like this?

$oExcel = ObjCreate("Excel.Application")
$oExcel.Visible = 1
$oExcel.WorkBooks.Add()
$sObject = "ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(2)"
Execute("$oExcel." & $sObject & ".Select()")
