Instance of COM object


This is technically not a function but a constructor to a reserved class called COM for accessing COM objects in PHP 4.0. This is functionally similar to com_load() in PHP 3.0. From here you can easily call functions and read properties from the new COM object. For setting properties in the COM object, use com_set() and com_get() . The code in the following example would be written as 'set com = Server.CreateObject("ObjectName.ClassName")' in ASP.


Existing since version 4.0


Example 114. Create and read from a new COM object

$com = new COM("ObjectName.ClassName");
$ret = $com->DoFunction();
