I can't do that.  According to the 'Transitive Rule' of QueryInterface, if one has an interface
pointer on an object supporting multiple interfaces, one should be able to navigate to any other interface
supported by the object.
That does not apply to outgoing interfaces. The object should ignore QueryInteface calls for
outgoing interfaces.
Why do you think the following method exists?
Code: [Select]

IConnectionPointContainer::FindConnectionPoint

Anyway, each object can have as many outgoing interfaces as it sees fit.
Each one of those outgoing interfaces is managed by an IConnectionPoint interface.
So, for example, given the following scenario for an object:

Code: [Select]
$DIID_ITREEEVENTS           $IID_IPROPERTYNOTIFYSINK
      |                              |
IConnectionPoint 1             IConnectionPoint 2

Can you explain to me how QueryInterface(IID_ICONNECTIONPOINT) on this control will return a meaningful value?

       
Also, your class factory code is raising a lot of red flags for me. I will have to take a closer look at it.

Ahh!  It just sank in what you are saying Dominic.  Perhaps I didn't get it right away because I wasn't doing in my clients what you are saying my COM object is allowing, that is, making a direct QueryInterface for IConnectionPoint from perhaps the initial IUnknown or IComControl interfaces.  In my fifth post is the only low level client I posted and that is the C++ program and there I got my initial IUnknown/IComControl pointer, queried for IConnectionPointContainer off of it, called IConnectionPointContainer::FindConnectionPoint, then called IConnectionPoint::Advise, just like its supposed to be I believe.  But the setup as I have it now would allow for a QueryInterface for IConnectionPoint right off the initial IUnknown pointer.  I've gotta go to bed now as its late here, but tomorrow I'll look at that and can probably easily fix it.  That will actually reduce the code bulk I believe.

Well, I tried to do what Dominic is recommending but it isn’t working.  Before I get into the details, let me first describe what my understanding is of what Dominic is recommending.  He is saying that an object should not support a QueryInterface() call for IID_IConnectionPoint because the IConnectionPointContainer::FindConnectionPoint() method was designed to produce that interface pointer.  I agree with that so I commented out the Case clause of my IComCtrl_QueryInterface() function containing the code to return a IConnectionPoint pointer so that E_NOINTERFACE would be returned if that request was made (see below)….

Code: [Select]
Function IComCtrl_QueryInterface(ByVal this As IComCtrl Ptr, ByRef iid As Guid, ByVal ppv As Dword Ptr) As Long
  Prnt "      Entering IComCtrl_QueryInterface()"
  @ppv=%NULL
  Select Case iid
    Case $IID_IUnknown
      Prnt "        Trying To Get IUnknown"
      Call IComCtrl_AddRef(this)
      @ppv=this
      Prnt "        this = " & Str$(this)
      Prnt "      Leaving IComCtrl_QueryInterface()"
      Function=%S_OK
      Exit Function
    Case $IID_ICOMCtrl
      Prnt "        Trying To Get IComCtrl"
      Call IComCtrl_AddRef(this)
      @ppv=this
      Prnt "        this = " & Str$(this)
      Prnt "      Leaving IComCtrl_QueryInterface()"
      Function=%S_OK
      Exit Function
    Case $IID_IConnectionPointContainer
      Prnt "        Trying To Get IConnectionPointContainer"   
      Prnt "        this = " & Str$(this) 
      Incr this
      @ppv=this
      Call IConnectionPointContainer_AddRef(this)
      Prnt "        this = " & Str$(this)
      Prnt "      Leaving IComCtrl_QueryInterface()"
      Function=%S_OK
      Exit Function
    'Case $IID_IConnectionPoint
    '  Prnt "        Trying To Get IConnectionPoint"
    '  Prnt "        this = " & Str$(this) 
    '  Incr this : Incr this
    '  @ppv=this
    '  Call IConnectionPoint_AddRef(this)
    '  Prnt "        this = " & Str$(this) 
    '  Prnt "      Leaving IComCtrl_QueryInterface()"
    '  Function=%S_OK
    '  Exit Function
    Case Else
      Prnt "        Looking For Something I Ain't Got!"
      Prnt "      Leaving IComCtrl_QueryInterface()" 
  End Select

  Function=%E_NoInterface
End Function


When I recompiled and attempted to run the VB.NET program it crashed, and here is the error report it gave me…


Code: [Select]
An unhandled exception of type 'System.InvalidOperationException' occurred in prjCD.exe

Additional information: An error occurred creating the form. See Exception.InnerException for details. 
The error is: Unable to cast COM object of type 'CDLibrary.CDClass' to interface type

'System.Runtime.InteropServices.ComTypes.IConnectionPoint'.

This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID
'{B196B286-BAB4-101A-B69C-00AA00341D07}' failed due to the following error: No such interface supported
(Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004002 (E_NOINTERFACE)).

So I uncommented those lines back ‘in’, recompiled, and ran the .NET program again.  Below is the rather lengthy output from that run.  Check out about 55% of the way down in this output where I have several method calls blocked out with five spaces on either side so as to highlight them.  What is really odd is that .NET is making that IComCtrl_QueryInterface(IID_IConnectionPoint) call after it has already called IConnectionPointContainer::FindConnectionPoint() and already has a IConnectionPoint pointer from that!

This problem only occurred with .NET.  VB6 tolerated it as well as my PowerBASIC and C++ clients. 

After Dominic made his comment about this and it finally dawned on me what he was saying I thought back to the Connection Points example I had followed in Guy And Henry Eddon’s book “Inside Distributed COM” from Microsoft Press, and I realized that example probably didn’t provide a IConnectionPoint* either in its QueryInterface, and I had provided it in my CD.bas just through over zealousness and wanting to support all interface calls.  When I looked, however, I found that IID_IConnectionPoint was supported in that example, although due to the way C++ sets up Vtables its not entirely or even partially analogous to my code. Here is that C++ code…

Isn't it your implementation of IConnectionPointContainer::FindConnectionPoint that is doing
QueryInterface(IID_ICONNECTIONPOINT) rather than .NET?

The way I would implement this method, is to just simply return an AddRef'ed pointer to the requested interface.

By the way, why are you using global variables?  Try creating five controls on a form, deleting three of them and
interacting with the remaining two.

Isn't it your implementation of IConnectionPointContainer::FindConnectionPoint that is doing

No.  The whole ::FindConnectionPoint() thing seems to me to be just a wrapper around a QueryInterface()
call for IConnectionPoint off the IConnectionPointContainer interface.  At least that is what I gathered
from studying the implementation from my book which I essentially just copied to my specific control
I'm building here.  If there is more to it than that I simply havn't gotten that far yet.

What caused the VB.NET crash after I commented out the IConnectionPoint Case from IComCtrl_QueryInterface()
is that VB.NET made that call after it had already obtained an IConnectionPoint pointer from
::FindConnectionPoint() in the customary manner, and it made the call off the IComCtrl interface which you
have been stating all along shouldn't support a direct call for the IConnectionPoint interface.  I can
assure you that that IComCtrl_QueryInterface($IID_IConnectionPoint) call revealed and explained in the below
notes was not made by my dll but rather by .NET...

All I can think of why .NET would call my IComCtrl_QueryInterface() for IConnectionPoint after it already
successfully got one in the customary fashion of using FindConnectionPoint() is that it is wanting to
compare the values and that the result of that comparison is in some way meaningful to the algorithm it
is running.  If they match then maybe its algorithm thinks to itself "Hey!  Here's a component with a real
high regard to the 'Transitive Rule' Of QueryInterface."  I don't know.  All I know is that if I don't
return a valid IConnectionPoint interface pointer off the default interface .NET will crash.

The way I would implement this method, is to just simply return an AddRef'ed pointer to the requested interface.

Wow!  Why didn't I think of that!  

Incr this
@ppCP=this

Too easy I guess!  All kidding aside, I just copied from my Eddon "Inside Distributed COM" book, and that's
what they did.  

I'll address your other comments in a bit, because they raise some important issues.  Thanks again for looking at this Dominic.  Your input is
valuable to me.

By the way, why are you using global variables?

I hate globals and don't use them at all in my GUI Windows programming.  My typical protocol is to allocate memory for a type and stash the variables I need to persist across function calls in that type, then stash a pointer to it in .cbWndExtra bytes, properties, or something like that.  However, it seems with this COM programming all the book authors use a good number of globals, and I've just got in the habit of trying to ignore them and look the other way, kind of like what a policeman might do if he sees someone running a stop sign, then realizes its his wife's brother and in the interests of domestic tranquility decides to do nothing about it. 

I did try to eliminate some though and met with a modicum of success.  I got rid of the three Asciiz string variables containing ProgIds and such, and two object variables that were never even instantiated but needed to be declared due to their presence in function parameter lists.  However, the VTables themselves simply seem to have to persist.  So I don't know what else to do with them.  I'll shortly post an updated version of the program, and if anyone has any ideas as to how to eliminate any of the remaining globals, why, I'm all ears!

By the way, why are you using global variables?  Try creating five controls on a form, deleting three of them and
interacting with the remaining two.

Up to this point I had been more interested in just getting the thing to work at all even in the simplest case of just one object being instantiated.  However, I don't think I was completely oblivious to the issue of multiple instantiations.  Every time IClassFactory_CreateInstance() gets called CoTaskMemAlloc() was used to obtain a new and independent allocation for a CD object.  In the CreateControl() method I incremented the global g_CtrlId variable so each window would get a unique Control ID.  However, I hadn't really given it any concerted thought until you mentioned it, and upon examining the situation I found I had to make a couple very minor changes. 

First off, in the FindConnectionPoint::Unadvise() method I had this little nasty...

@g_ptrOutGoing=0

Don't know where or how exactly I came up with that but its now gone.  Also, in the Window Procedure that services any/all controls created I passed the message parameter back to the sink.  If one is interested in which one of several windows the message is coming from that bit of information isn't particularly useful.  So I changed the Call Dword function there to pass the hWnd instead.  Other than that, I believe those were the only changes I made to the control.  Here is the updated control as it now stands...

Re: Visual COM Control Work In Progress
« Reply #22 on: September 24, 2010, 09:13:04 PM »
In terms of that code, the first client I coded to test it was a C++ one and I modified my earlier C++ example I believe in post #5 of this thread to contain two controls, one under the other.  So I made the parent form higher and wider.  Associated with each control on the left were the three buttons to turn it blue, green, or red.  Then on the right of each control I put another button to kill that particular control.  What I wanted to test was what would happen if I killed one control and attempted to interact with its buttons or the other control.  I trust that whatever ill would result from your example of creating five controls, deleting three, then interacting with the remaining two would occur by creating two and deleting one.  I did have a fair bit of trouble with it but the trouble all involved my client/host - not the control.  I used the same sink for both controls.  Anyway, here is that C++ code followed by the console screen output.  I particularly like the C++ version because I'm picking up all the events right from entering my WM_CREATE handler in the client to the DllUnload event in the COM object.  The output is right after this Main.cpp code, and reflects a scenerio where I destroyed one of the controls, interacted with what's left, then x'ed out...

And finally CSink.h

Code: [Select]

 ~CSink() { }
 HRESULT __stdcall QueryInterface(REFIID iid, void** ppv);

 ULONG   __stdcall Release();
 HRESULT __stdcall ControlEvent(int Message);                  //IOutGoing

Re: Visual COM Control Work In Progress
« Reply #23 on: September 24, 2010, 09:48:33 PM »
One thing I might point out about that code is that since I was creating two controls I first called CoGetClassObject() instead of CoCreateInstance() and used that instead to create both controls.  Now here is a PowerBASIC PB9 version that seems to be working but I'm pretty certain isn't quite right, simply because I'm not very good yet with handling sinks and sink interfaces in PowerBASIC.  You can see some commented out code down in the WM_CLOSE handler that causes a crash after one x's out.  If I kill one or the other of the controls then x out I'll get a crash if I try to disconnect the sink.  However, the program works fine otherwise.  You can kill one or the other of the controls, interact with it however you want, etc., but something still isn't right.
