QAxAggregated — Abstract base class for implementations of additional COM interfaces

Synopsis

This class is part of the Qt ActiveQt Extension.

#include <qaxbindable.h>

Public Members

virtual long queryInterface ( const QUuid & iid, void ** iface ) = 0

Protected Members

IUnknown * controllingUnknown () const

QWidget * widget () const

QObject * object () const

Description

This class is defined in the Qt ActiveQt Extension, which can be found in the qt/extensions directory. It is not included in the main Qt API.

The QAxAggregated class is an abstract base class for implementations of additional COM interfaces.

Create a subclass of QAxAggregated and reimplement queryInterface() to support additional COM interfaces. Use multiple inheritance from those COM interfaces. Implement the IUnknown interface of those COM interfaces by delegating the calls to QueryInterface(), AddRef() and Release() to the interface provided by controllingUnknown().

Use the widget() method if you need to make calls to the QWidget implementing the ActiveX control. You must not store that pointer in your subclass (unless you use QGuardedPtr), as the QWidget can be destroyed by the ActiveQt framework at any time.

IUnknown * QAxAggregated::controllingUnknown () const [protected]

Returns the IUnknown interface of the ActiveX control. Implement the IUnknown interface in your QAxAggregated subclass to delegate calls to QueryInterface(), AddRef() and Release() to the interface provided by this function.

HRESULT AxImpl::QueryInterface( REFIID iid, void **iface )

{

    return controllingUnknown()->QueryInterface( iid, iface );

}

unsigned long AxImpl::AddRef()

{

    return controllingUnknown()->AddRef();

}

unsigned long AxImpl::Release()

{

    return controllingUnknown()->Release();

}

The QAXAGG_IUNKNOWN macro expands to the code above, and you can use it in the class declaration of your subclass.

QObject * QAxAggregated::object () const [protected]

Returns a pointer to the QObject subclass implementing the COM object. This function might return 0.

Warning: You must not store the returned pointer, unless you use a QGuardedPtr, since the QObject can be destroyed by ActiveQt at any time.

long QAxAggregated::queryInterface ( const QUuid & iid, void ** iface ) [pure virtual]

Reimplement this pure virtual function to support additional COM interfaces. Set the value of iface to point to this object to support the interface iid. Note that you must cast the this pointer to the appropriate superclass.

long AxImpl::queryInterface( const QUuid &iid, void **iface )

{

    *iface = 0;

    if ( iid == IID_ISomeCOMInterface )

        *iface = (ISomeCOMInterface*)this;

    else

        return E_NOINTERFACE;

    AddRef();

    return S_OK;

}

Return the standard COM results S_OK (interface is supported) or E_NOINTERFACE (requested interface is not supported).

Warning: Even though you must implement the IUnknown interface if you implement any COM interface you must not support the IUnknown interface in your queryInterface() implementation.

QWidget * QAxAggregated::widget () const [protected]

Returns a pointer to the QWidget subclass implementing the ActiveX control. This function might return 0.

Warning: You must not store the returned pointer, unless you use a QGuardedPtr, since the QWidget can be destroyed by ActiveQt at any time.
