$comcall(name,alias,member,method,type1,value1,...,typeN,valueN)

This calls a member of an open COM connection with the specified method and parameters.

Uses the same format as $com() apart from the alias. It is multi-threaded so it will not halt the script and will call the specified alias once the call returns.

Returns: 1 = ok, 0 = fail.

Parameters

name - Connection name.
alias - Alias to call when the call is finished.
member - Member name.
method - Combination of the following values added together:

             1 = DISPATCH_METHOD
             2 = DISPATCH_PROPERTYGET
             4 = DISPATCH_PROPERTYPUT
             8 = DISPATCH_PROPERTYPUTREF

type - The variable type, can be: i1, i2, i4, ui1, ui2, ui4, int, uint, r4, r8, cy, date, decimal, bool, bstr, variant, dispatch, unknown, error.
             VB equivalents are: boolean, byte, currency, date, double, integer, long, single, string, variant.
             To make a variable by reference, use * in the type name, eg. i1*
             To assign a name to a variable for later reference after a call, append it to the type, eg. i1* varname
             When using a variant you must also specify the variable type after it, eg. variant bool.

value - The value assigned to the variable type.
