IViewObject2 interface

An extension to the IViewObject interface which returns the size of the drawing for a given view of an object. You can prevent the object from being run if it isn't already running by calling this method instead of IOleObject::GetExtent.

Like the IViewObject interface, IViewObject2 cannot be marshaled to another process. This is because device contexts are only effective in the context of one process.

The OLE-provided default implementation provides the size of the object in the cache.


The IViewObject2 interface has these methods.

Method Description
IViewObject2::GetExtent Retrieves the size that the specified view object will be drawn on the specified target device.
