Howto access a enumeration in a COM TypeLib

P: n/a
Hello alltogether,

I hope somebody can help me in that case. I bet I have overseen s.th..

I have a VC++ IDispatch Com-Server (ATL) and include for error handling
issues a enumeration in the IDL-File.

[...]
enum PROG_ERROR {
P_OK = 0,
P_ERR_01 = 1,
P_ERR_02 = 2,
...
}
typedef enum PROG_ERROR PROG_ERROR_T;

[...]

I can acess the COM object using :

obj = win32com.client.Dispatch("...")

and can Load the TypeLib:

lib = pythonwin.LoadTypeLib("...")

and see the enumeration in the OLE-Browser of Windows, but don't know
how to access the enum in Python.

Any help and hints are very welcome.

Regards
Alexander

PS.: I use the actual version of ActivePython 2.4.

Use site-packages/win32com/client/makepy.py to produce myserver.py
from your typelib file, then
import myserver
print myserver.constants. P_OK

0

Maybe you can access constants without makepy, I don't know.
