#72 closed Bug (No Bug)

MFC ActiveX Control doesn't work w/ AutoIt

Reported by: livewire Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity:
Keywords: mfc activex control Cc:


MFC ActiveX controls' properies and methods cannot be accessed/invoked via AutoIt. These same controls can be accessed/invoked via VB6 and the ActiveX Control Test Container that comes with Visual Studio 6.

I would expect that if I create an MFC ActiveX Control, I would be able to access/invoke the properties and methods.

You can reproduce the bug by following my instructions on the link below.

OS: Windows XP SP2

Here is a link to my topic on the support forum which contains a sample MFC ActiveX Control:

...forgot to provide some sample code...the following code sample fails if the line is uncommented.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Plot Sample", 443, 386, 193, 115)
$PlotObj = ObjCreate("PLOT.PlotCtrl.1")
$PlotObj_ctrl = GUICtrlCreateObj($PlotObj, 32, 8, 376, 328)
$PlotObj_event = ObjEvent($PlotObj,"PlotEvent_")

While 1
	$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
	Switch $nMsg

  • Resolution set to nobug
  • Status changed from new to closed

The object does not implement IDispatch. Objects must properly implement IDispatch in order for AutoIt to use them. This is not a bug.
