OLELoad (Function)
In french: OLECharge
Initializes an OLE control with an OLE object. The OLE server is invoked to load the OLE object. The OLE object appears in the control: the control is updated. The server is not started.
Note: Depending on the server that created the OLE object, the object can be displayed in the control as:
  • its bitmap representation. Example: image created with Paint Brush.
  • its vector representation. Example: worksheet created with Excel.
  • the icon representing the server. Example: WinWord icon.
  • text.
Example
// Load the object
OLELoad(OLE_OLE2, "OBJECT1.OLE")

// Process the object

// Save the object
OLESave(OLE_OLE2, "OBJECT1.OLE")
Syntax
<Result> = OLELoad(<OLE control> , <File name>)
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the OLE object was loaded,
  • False otherwise.
<OLE control>: Control name
Name of OLE control to initialize. If this parameter corresponds to an empty string (""), the control to which the current event belongs will be used.
<File name>: Character string (with quotes)
Name of OLE object. This object must have been created by OLESave.
Remarks

Finding out the name of the OLE file associated with a control

To find out the name of the OLE file associated with a control, use the following syntax:
FileName = OLE_OLE1 // OLE_OLE1 is the name of the control

Modifying the content of an OLE control

To modify the name of the file associated with a control, use the following syntax:
OLE_OLE1 = FileName // OLE_OLE1 is the name of the control
This line is equivalent to OLELoad(OLE_OLE1, FileName).

Displaying the content of an OLE binary memo

To display the content of an OLE binary memo, use the following syntax:
OLELoad(ControlName, DataFileName.ItemName)
For example:
OLELoad(OLE_OLE1, Product.OLEMemo)
