IRunnableObject interface (objidl.h)

Enables a container to control the running of its embedded objects. In the case of an object implemented with a local server, calling the Run method launches the server's .EXE file. In the case of an object implemented with an in-process server, calling Run causes the object .DLL file to transition into the running state.

Inheritance

The IRunnableObject interface inherits from the IUnknown interface. IRunnableObject also has these types of members:

Methods

The IRunnableObject interface has these methods.

 
IRunnableObject::GetRunningClass

Retrieves the CLSID of a running object.
IRunnableObject::IsRunning

Determines whether an object is currently in the running state.
IRunnableObject::LockRunning

Locks an already running object into its running state or unlocks it from its running state. (IRunnableObject.LockRunning)
IRunnableObject::Run

Forces an object to run.
IRunnableObject::SetContainedObject

Notifies an object that it is embedded in an OLE container, which ensures that reference counting is done correctly for containers that support links to embedded objects. (IRunnableObject.SetContainedObject)
