IOleControlSite::TransformCoords method

Converts coordinates expressed in HIMETRIC units (as is standard in OLE) to the units specified by the container.

Syntax

HRESULT TransformCoords(
  POINTL *pPtlHimetric,
  POINTF *pPtfContainer,
  DWORD  dwFlags
);

Parameters

pPtlHimetric

Address of a POINTL structure containing coordinates expressed in HIMETRIC units. This is an [in] parameter when dwFlags contains XFORMCOORDS_HIMETRICTOCONTAINER; it is an [out] parameter with XFORMCOORDS_CONTAINERTOHIMETRIC. In the latter case, the contents are undefined on error.

pPtfContainer

Address of a caller-allocated POINTF structure that receives the converted coordinates. This is an [in] parameter when dwFlags contains XFORMCOORDS_CONTAINERTOHIMETRIC; it is an [out] parameter with XFORMCOORDS_HIMETRICTOCONTAINER. In the latter case, the contents are undefined on error.

dwFlags

Flags indicating the exact conversion to perform. This parameter can be any combination of the following values, except as indicated.

Value Meaning
XFORMCOORDS_POSITION
0x1
The coordinates to convert represent a position point. Cannot be used with XFORMCOORDS_SIZE.
XFORMCOORDS_SIZE
0x2
The coordinates to convert represent a set of dimensions. Cannot be used with XFORMCOORDS_POSITION.
XFORMCOORDS_HIMETRICTOCONTAINER
0x4
The operation converts pptlHimetric into pptfContainer. Cannot be used with XFORMCOORDS_CONTAINERTOHIMETRIC.
XFORMCOORDS_CONTAINERTOHIMETRIC
0x8
The operation converts pptfContainer into pptlHimetric. Cannot be used with XFORMCOORDS_HIMETRICTOCONTAINER.
XFORMCOORDS_EVENTCOMPAT
0x10
The operation maintains compatibility with an event.

Return Value

This method can return the standard return values E_INVALIDARG and E_UNEXPECTED, as well as the following values.

Return code Description
S_OK
The method completed successfully.
E_NOTIMPL
The container does not require any special coordinate conversions. The container deals completely in HIMETRIC.
E_POINTER
The address in pPtlHimetric or pPtfContainer is not valid. For example, it may be NULL.

Remarks

A control uses this method when it has to send coordinates to a container within an event or some other custom call or when the control has container coordinates that it needs to convert into HIMETRIC units.
