SftTree/OCX 7.5 - ActiveX Tree Control


Syntax Conventions Used

The syntax shown in this documentation follows these guidelines. Each property, method and event is shown for Visual Basic .NET (VB.NET), Visual Basic 6 (VB), C# (C#.NET), Visual C++ (VC++) and C (C).

The syntax for properties shows up to three forms (Get, Put and PutRef) if available, the first to retrieve the property value, the second and third to set the property value. For most properties, only a Get and Put syntax is shown. Font and picture properties also allow a third form (PutRef). If both Put and PutRef is available, PutRef is the preferred form as it conserves resources and assigns a font or picture object reference to the control. Any change to the font or picture object is reflected in the control also. Put on the other hand causes the control to completely copy the font or picture object.



VB.NETrefPictureObj = object.Picture As stdole.IPictureDisp
VBSet refPictureObj = object.Picture As IPictureDisp
C#.NETstdole.IPictureDisp refPictureObj = object.Picture;
VC++IPictureDisp* refPictureObj = object->GetPicture();
CHRESULT object->get_Picture(IPictureDisp** refPictureObj);


VB.NETobject.let_Picture(ByVal refPictureObj As stdole.IPictureDisp)
VBobject.Picture = refPictureObj As IPictureDisp
C#.NETvoid object.let_Picture(stdole.IPictureDisp refPictureObj);
VC++void object->PutPicture(IPictureDisp* refPictureObj);
CHRESULT object->put_Picture(IPictureDisp* refPictureObj);


VB.NETobject.Picture = refPictureObj As stdole.IPictureDisp

C#.NETstdole.IPictureDisp object.Picture = refPictureObj;
VC++void object->PutRefPicture(IPictureDisp* refPictureObj);
CHRESULT object->putref_Picture(IPictureDisp* refPictureObj);
