IOleInPlaceSite interface

Manages the interaction between the container and the object's in-place client site. Recall that the client site is the display site for embedded objects, and provides position and conceptual information about the object.

This interface provides methods that manage in-place objects. With IOleInPlaceSite, you can determine if an object can be activated and manage its activation and deactivation. You can notify the container when one of its objects is being activated and inform the container that a composite menu will replace the container's regular menu. It provides methods that make it possible for the in-place object to retrieve the window object hierarchy, and the position in the parent window where the object should place its in-place activation window. Finally, it determines how the container scrolls the object, manages the object undo state, and notifies the object when its borders have changed.

Methods

The IOleInPlaceSite interface has these methods.

Method Description
IOleInPlaceSite::CanInPlaceActivate Determines whether the container can activate the object in place.
IOleInPlaceSite::DeactivateAndUndo Deactivates the object, ends the in-place session, and reverts to the container's saved undo state.
IOleInPlaceSite::DiscardUndoState Instructs the container to discard its undo state. The container should not call IOleInPlaceObject::ReActivateAndUndo.
IOleInPlaceSite::GetWindowContext Enables an in-place object to retrieve the window interfaces that form the window object hierarchy, and the position in the parent window where the object's in-place activation window should be located.
IOleInPlaceSite::OnInPlaceActivate Notifies the container that one of its objects is being activated in place.
IOleInPlaceSite::OnInPlaceDeactivate Notifies the container that the object is no longer active in place.
IOleInPlaceSite::OnPosRectChange Notifies the container that the object extents have changed.
IOleInPlaceSite::OnUIActivate Notifies the container that the object is about to be activated in place and that the object is going to replace the container's main menu with an in-place composite menu.
IOleInPlaceSite::OnUIDeactivate Notifies the container that it should reinstall its user interface and take focus, and whether the object has an undoable state.
IOleInPlaceSite::Scroll Instructs the container to scroll the view of the object by the specified number of pixels.
