win32com support (follow up to previous thread)

P: n/a
Does this mean that there isn't a way to put a button into Visual
Studio 6.0 and then have it execute python code all purely done in

I.e could I write a python program that puts a button in the msdev
toolbar like the example and then when its pushed reformats
the current document, using the Application.Document.SelectAll() com
methods or something like that.


Generally, you can do a QueryInterface for the object. However, if
the object does not support IDispatch, you will haver trouble - we
don't support arbitrary interfaces when calling them, only
implementing them.

ob = ob._obj_.QueryInterface(

I take it the chances of this working are slim to none ?

The GUID must be for a type library. If you run " -i", then you will get a list of all valid typelibs you can use, and the params for it.


Perhaps I should look at implementing the actual addin in C++ and

thenembed python into it so that most the work can be done by that.

Thanks for your help anyway
