WIN32OLE objects represent OLE Automation object in Ruby.

By using WIN32OLE, you can access OLE server like VBScript.

Here is sample script.

require 'win32ole'

excel = WIN32OLE.new('Excel.Application')
excel.visible = true
workbook = excel.Workbooks.Add();
worksheet = workbook.Worksheets(1);
worksheet.Range("A1:D1").value = ["North","South","East","West"];
worksheet.Range("A2:B2").value = [5.2, 10];
worksheet.Range("C2").value = 8;
worksheet.Range("D2").value = 20;

range = worksheet.Range("A1:D2");
range.select
chart = workbook.Charts.Add;

workbook.saved = true;

excel.ActiveWorkbook.Close(0);
excel.Quit();

Unfortunately, Win32OLE doesn’t support the argument passed by reference directly. Instead, Win32OLE provides WIN32OLE::ARGV or WIN32OLE_VARIANT object. If you want to get the result value of argument passed by reference, you can use WIN32OLE::ARGV or WIN32OLE_VARIANT.

oleobj.method(arg1, arg2, refargv3)
puts WIN32OLE::ARGV[2]   # the value of refargv3 after called oleobj.method

or

refargv3 = WIN32OLE_VARIANT.new(XXX,
            WIN32OLE::VARIANT::VT_BYREF|WIN32OLE::VARIANT::VT_XXX)
oleobj.method(arg1, arg2, refargv3)
p refargv3.value # the value of refargv3 after called oleobj.method.

Constants

LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT = 0x0400

LOCALE_SYSTEM_DEFAULT = 0x0800

CP_UTF8 = 65001

CP_UTF7 = 65000

CP_SYMBOL = 42

CP_THREAD_ACP = 3

CP_MACCP = INT2FIX(CP_MACCP)

CP_OEMCP = 1

CP_ACP = 0

ARGV = After invoking OLE methods with reference arguments, you can access the value of arguments by using ARGV. If the method of OLE(COM) server written by C#.NET is following: void calcsum(int a, int b, out int c) { c = a + b; } then, the Ruby OLE(COM) client script to retrieve the value of argument c after invoking calcsum method is following: a = 10 b = 20 c = 0 comserver.calcsum(a, b, c) p c # => 0 p WIN32OLE::ARGV # => [10, 20, 30] You can use WIN32OLE_VARIANT object to retrieve the value of reference arguments instead of refering WIN32OLE:

VERSION = rb_str_new2(WIN32OLE_VERSION)
