Function CreateObject() Foundation
Creates and returns a reference to a COM/ActiveX component.
CreateObject( <cProgID>, [<cServer>] ) --> oAutomationObject | NIL
The function returns an object from class AutomationObject. If the object cannot be created, return is NIL. In case CCreateObject() returns NIL, the functions ComLastError() and ComLastMessage() can be used to query the error number and the error message.
The AutomationObject returned can be used to access the methods and properties of the COM/ActiveX component, in the same way as with an ordinary Xbase++ object. Method calls as well as read or write access to a property (instance variable) is routed automatically to the COM/ActiveX component. It makes no difference whether the object is created on the local machine, or whether it is hosted by a server specified in parameter <cServer>.
