By any chance do you know how to access the properties of an ole object in a datawindow in PB Clasic 12.1. First time I am playing with OLE object in a datawindow.
This is the scenario:
I have a data window dw_1 and in dw_1 I inserted an ole object ole_1 (ole_1 is an Angular Gauge to represent % of Labor Efficiency).
Then I have window with a datawindow control and I use dw_1 as my dataobject. The gauges show up perfectly and seems to be working because if I click on it the needle, it moves to where I click in the ole (at run time).
Also the datawindow work fine (retrieve the data).
The ole_1 object property I need to access is NeedleValue and you set the value with a method SetNeedleValue(Double x). How do I access this method ?
If I tray to set the value of NeedleValue it does not assign the value (at run time), but I think I am not accessing the property correctly. In the datawindow painter the properties are change without any problem
Help on How to access the properties of the ole_1 inside of a datawindow?
If I double click the object in the datawindow painter the properties window of the ole shows and I can change the properties. Now at run time I do not know how to access the properties.
Also this is the code I used to try to set the value to the mentioned property.
As this line of code execute nothing happens. It just go thru like if it works.
I also use dw_1.object.ole_1.NeedleValue = 123 then I get "Error accessing external object property NeedleValue at line xxx".
Also I attached the ocx just in case somebody have a chance and give me an advice.
I will appreciate any input.
