    Complete List and Descriptions of Methods and Objects?


      What secret society do I need to belong to get a description of all the methods supported by DxD for instance? I post questions and search the web and get code examples that make use of methods that are not listed in any of the following manuals:


      DxDesigner Automation Reference Manual

      DxDesigner Automation Data Model (though this is more complete it does not describe the objects/methods/etc)

      Common Automation Reference


      The most complete list I can get is when I put the following commented line at the top of the code

      ' CreateObject("Viewdraw.Application") and open with VbsEdit.


      But I see items there that I have not found explained anywhere.


      What am I missing? More trial and error, the lost manual or decades of VBS programming?



      Please help, thanks,

      Ray Haynes

          Hi Ray,


          Using an object browser like VBSEdit or Microsoft Office VBA is helpful for viewing the entire object model, whether the methods/properties are documented or not.


          However, the undocumented methods/properties are usually not documented either because the method/property is obsolete, or for internal use only (for integrating software components developed by Mentor).


          So you're looking in the right places, including this forum.
