Object Linking and Embedding (OLE)

Previous Next

USoft Developer allows you to include OLE (= Object Linking and Embedding) containers in your application. These containers can hold objects from any Windows application that supports OLE, such as the Explorer, Word, Video for Windows, and so on. These objects are stored in the database in the form of Binary Large Objects (BLOBs). By double clicking on such an object, the end-user can either edit the object with the "original" application, or in case of multimedia files (for example WAV and AVI) play the particular clip.

You cannot use objects from 16-bit applications (for example Microsoft Word for Windows 6.0) in 32-bit applications (like USoft Developer).

NOTE: The options for manipulating OLE objects in your application can all be accessed by clicking the right mouse button.
