Create New Accessible Objects

In this scenario, the server creates a new accessible object in response to each OBJID_CLIENT request.

In the following example code, a pointer to the control is retrieved from the extra window data. This and the window handle are passed to the constructor of the custom accessibility server (AccServer) object. This object is created whenever OBJID_CLIENT is received.

When the object is created, the server obtains a reference, which must be released after calling LresultFromObject, so that the object is destroyed as soon as the client is finished with it. Note that LresultFromObject increments the reference count several times, but it is the responsibility of client applications, and the Microsoft Active Accessibility runtime, to release these references.

    // Return the IAccessible object. 
    if ((DWORD)lParam == OBJID_CLIENT)
        // Get the control.  
        CustomListControl* pCustomList = (CustomListControl*)(LONG_PTR)GetWindowLongPtr(hwnd, 0);
        AccServer* pAccServer = new AccServer(hwnd, pCustomList);
        if (pAccServer != NULL)  // NULL if out of memory. 
            LRESULT Lresult = LresultFromObject(IID_IAccessible, wParam, pAccServer);
            return Lresult;
        else return 0;
