External Program Interfaces : Using COM Objects in ABL : Managing COM objects in an application

Managing COM objects in an application

ABL provides a number of mechanisms in ABL to help manage COM objects in an application. Some of these mechanisms derive from general ABL constructs previously available, while others are added to ABL just for COM object support. Together, they support the following application tasks:
*Component handle validation
*Font and color management
*ActiveX collection navigation
*Resource management
*Error handling
* Validating component handles
* Managing COM object font and color settings
* Navigating ActiveX collections
* Managing COM object resources
* Error handling
