Method XbpActiveXControl():new() Foundation

Creates an instance of the XbpActiveXControl class.

XbpActiveXControl():new( [<oParent>], [<oOwner>], ;
                         [<aPos>],    [<aSize>],  ;
                         [<aPP>],     [<lVisible>] ) --> oXbpActiveXControl
The parent for the XbpActiveXControl can be optionally be specified using the parameter <oParent>. By default <oParent> is the active window (the return value of SetAppWindow()).
<oOwner> can be used to set the owner for the XbpActiveXControl. By default <oOwner> is the same as <oParent>.
<aPos> := { nX, nY }
The optional parameter <aPos> can be used to specify the position where the XbpActiveXControl is displayed. By default, this parameter contains the array {0,0}. This specifies the position for the lower left corner of the XbpActiveXControl. The first element contains the x coordinate and the second contains the y coordinate. The coordinates are relative to the coordinate system of <oParent>.
<aSize> := { nXsize, nYsize }
The parameter <aSize> optionally specifies the size of the XbpActiveXControl. <aSize> must be an array containing two elements. The first element specifies the dimension in the x direction (width) and the second element specifies the dimension in the y direction (height). By default this value is the array {0,0}.
A two dimensional array can be specified for <aPresParam>. Refer to Generic presentation parametersfor a detailed explanation.
The parameter <lVisible> determines whether the XbpActiveXControl is visible immediately after the call to the method :create(). By default <lVisible>is .T. (true) and the Xbase Part is displayed after :create() is executed. This default behavior can be suppressed by specifying the value .F. (false) for the parameter <lVisible>. In this case, the object must be explicitly displayed using the :show() method.

The class method :new() returns an XbpActiveXControl object.


The method :new() creates an XbpActiveXControl instance. It is identical to method XbpWindow:new() in purpose and operation.

The properties and methods exposed by an ActiveX control can only be accessed after the method :create() was called. After :new() was called on an XbpActiveXControl object, an Xbase++ application may only change the values of the :CLSID, :server and :license instance variables.
