The names of the dispatch function, coclass and so on.
A symbol which will be defined as a macro, as if by
with-dispatch-interface. The macro can be used by the forms to invoke the Automation methods of the component.
A symbol which names the coclass. It is not evaluated.
A symbol naming an interface in the coclass. It is not evaluated.
A symbol which will be bound to the interface pointer.
A CLSCTX value, which defaults to
A form to be evaluated.
create-object to make an instance of the coclass named by the symbol coclass-name. If interface-name is given then that interface is queried from the component, otherwise the default interface is queried. Each form is evaluated in turn with dispatch-function bound of a local macro for invoking methods on the interface, as if by
with-dispatch-interface. After the forms have been evaluated, the interface pointer is released. If punk is given, it will be bound to the interface pointer while the forms are being evaluated.
