Ole in VC ++
Hello All ,
I need to implement OLE in one perticular place. I am dealing in cad / cam softwares(Windows Based).
I am planning to develope an application which links with already installed windows based CAM software.After linking am planning to use the interface functions available ( as ole technology promises so) to give commands to software.
In above idea I mean to say an application which am developing will work as interface and CAM software will work as a backend tool for calculation purpose.
could anubody help me to concritise above idea.

It works, but is slow. If you are sending lots of data the performance may be unacceptable (then again, computers are so damn fast, it may be acceptable). I used to use Excel as my report display/print tool (never could get Crystal Reports to work worth a damn) and use OLE to dump the data, but if I were sending more than a hundred or so peices of data, the lag would be noticable (and a couple of thousand peices of data would be anoyingly so).
