The OLE control is used to handle an OLE object.
Reminder: OLE is a protocol for exchanging data and commands whose principle consists in embedding and linking objects. The Client/Server connection is established as soon as the embedded object is opened.
An OLE object is a file containing:
- the reference of the OLE server that created the object
- the object itself (image, document...).
Technically speaking, an OLE object encapsulates data containing text, images, sounds... Data encapsulation in OLE objects enables these objects to be exported without knowing anything about their structure.
To create an OLE control:
- In the window editor, clickor select "Insert .. Control .. OLE control".On the "创建" pane, in the "其他控件" group, click "OLE".
- Click the position where the control must be created in the window.
To display the characteristics of the control, select "Description" from the popup menu of the control.
