Using powercobol 5.0 controls with ole..

Using powercobol 5.0 controls with ole..

Hi all

I would like to use the static and text (and others) powercobol 5.0 controls by calling and (above all) creating them by using the ole method.

I wrote (for manage the static controls):

 DATA            DIVISION.
 01 G-SUBFORM-OLENAME PIC X(32) VALUE        "Fujitsu.PcobStaticText.4" GLOBAL.
 01 testo PIC X(100) VALUE "sample text".
 01 POS    PIC S9(4) COMP-5 VALUE 100.



      INVOKE OGGETTO "SET-caption" using TESTO.

---------------------trouble at this line

          INVOKE OGGETTO "SET-Width" using POS.

Last invoke issues a object error. I have seen by using the oleview.exe program that the property "Width" is not present inside the COM control. So I can guess that I need to get and instance of other object.. Has someone any feedback about this ?

Thanks in advance

RE: Using powercobol 5.0 controls with ole..


Not sure this helps,but the Fujitsu help states Position made up of the following elements. This property corresponds to the POS-Width
01  Positions.
    02 POS-X pic s9(4) comp-5.
    02 POS-Y pic s9(4) comp-5.
    02 POS-WIDTH pic s9(4) comp-5.
    02 POS-HEIGHT pic s9(4) comp-5.

The invoke OGGETTO "SET-POW-WIDTH" .... do the same error.

It isn't inside the property's list of the oggetto item.
