What Automation Can Do?
Many corporate customers have requested a COM Interface for GenoPro.
The term OLE Automation is the implementation of a collection of
COM Interfaces. A COM Interface is a binary protocol to allow different
applications to communicate and exchange data.
If you need to display a family tree inside your software but do not want to
write all the code to edit and draw a family tree, then OLE Automation is
your solution. GenoPro can become an integrated component of your software
package. Your program may be written in Java, C#, C, C++, VisualBasic or
below is a VBScript capable to launch GenoPro, open/create a family tree and
save the family tree data in the XML format.
Set docGenoPro = CreateObject("GenoPro.Document")
edit2.Value = docGenoPro.GetTextXML
Test Drive the Automation Server
You need Internet Explorer 5.5 or later. If you do not have
Internet Explorer, the demo below will not work. Internet Explorer is a
great companion to GenoPro, since GenoPro is an ActiveX control capable to
display a family tree within a web browser. To view a demo of a family tree
