The interface pointer and a specification of the method to be called.
A form which is evaluated to yield a COM
i-dispatch interface pointer.
A symbol which names the method. It is not evaluated.
Arguments to the method (see Data conversion when calling Automation methods for details).
Values from the method (see Data conversion when calling Automation methods for details).
call-dispatch-method macro is used to invoke an Automation method from Lisp. The dispinterface-ptr should be a COM interface pointer for the
i-dispatch interface. The appropriate Automation method, chosen using dispinterface-name and method-name, is invoked after evaluating each arg. The args must be values that are suitable for the method and of types compatible with Automation. The values returned are as specified by the method signature. See Data conversion when calling Automation methods for more details. If there is no Automation method with the given method-name, then a property getter with the same name is called if it exists, otherwise an error is signaled. The
setf form of
call-dispatch-method can be used to call property setter methods.
