57086-1 "The Essence of OLE puts a training workshop in your hands, allowing you to explore and experiment with OLE and ActiveX in the context of modern development tools. David Platt teaches you to swim in the shallow end of the pool while always encouraging you to challenge yourself in deeper waters." Kraig Brockschmidt, Author of Inside OLE Finally, OLE explained the right way-simply, elegantly, and consistently. OLE has a reputation for being hard to learn. But it isn't-not if you take the time to understand OLE's underlying principles, and learn OLE techniques one step at a time. That's where The Essence of OLE' comes in. It's the first self-study OLE guide and workbook that actually makes OLE easy to understand-and helps you become comfortable using it. With The Essence of OLE, you'll start with the simplest OLE applications, and then build on what you learn, one technique at a time, in easy, bite-size chunks. Along the way, you'll discover OLE's internal elegance and consistency. You'll also see both the underlying API and the prefabricated functionality provided by the MFC.Through masterfully explained examples, you'll learn about: *The Component Object Model at the heart of OLE. *Sourcing and using data objects, data transfer and drag-and-drop techniques. *OLE automation, including both controllers and servers. *ActiveX controls and their containers. *OLE on the Internet, including ActiveX Scripting. You'll also get 10 megabytes of working sample code you can cut and paste into your own applications-code that can help you jumpstart virtually any OLE development project! As OLE and ActiveX play an ever-greater role in both desktop and Internet applications, strong OLE skills are becoming even more important. There's simply no better way for Windows developers to get those skills than with The Essence of OLE.'
