Title: c++ interface translate
Post by: TouEnMasm on February 05, 2016, 07:29:07 PM
i am working on the translation for masm of c++ interface.
One (win10) isn't very easy to understand
interface DX_DECLARE_INTERFACE("2cd906a8-12e2-11dc-9fed-001143a055f9") ID2D1Brush  : public ID2D1Resource
    // Sets the opacity for when the brush is drawn over the entire fill of the brush.
    STDMETHOD_(void, SetOpacity)(
        FLOAT opacity
        ) PURE;
    // Sets the transform that applies to everything drawn by the brush.
    STDMETHOD_(void, SetTransform)(
        _In_ CONST D2D1_MATRIX_3X2_F *transform
        ) PURE;
    STDMETHOD_(FLOAT, GetOpacity)(
        ) CONST PURE;
    STDMETHOD_(void, GetTransform)(
        _Out_ D2D1_MATRIX_3X2_F *transform
        ) CONST PURE;
        CONST D2D1_MATRIX_3X2_F &transform
}; // interface ID2D1Brush
The SetTransform is repeated twice,The first is the normal form of an Interface Function and the second look like the declaration of an api.
How to interpret This?.
The second SetTransform is it part of the interface or not ?.
Is this form correct ?

;  Interface:
;      ID2D1Brush
;  Synopsis:
;      The root brush interface. All brushes can be used to fill or pen a geometry.
; The SetTransform is said overloaded

Sorry, I just noticed this post,'ve probably already figured it out.

Does ID2D1Resource have a SetTransform method ?
Notice how in the C++ ID2D1Brush Interface declaration, all the methods have normal parentheses () after the method name, in which the method parameters are listed ? This is the form of a virtual function, isn't it ? And in the declaration of SetTransform, after the normal parenthesis, there is a line with the curly braces, as follows,...
Code: [Select]

That version of the SetTransform ends with a semicolon, which means it is a statement...I think that this form is like an implementation,...probably invoking the SetTransform method of ID2D1Resource.

But, I'm guessing,...I've forgotten all the COM stuff that I learned,...before I lost my mind to old age and dementia,...sorry,...:bgrin:

...Of course, in MASM assembly language, don't have inheritance. So you would just implement the SetTransform method however you want, and call it with a pointer from the vtable, I right ? Really, all seriousness,...that explanation confused even me (ha, ha),... :icon_eek:

SetTransform is an overloaded method (in c++) and only the first version (STDMETHOD_(...)) is part of COM interface.

Ah, ha,...well, that was going to be my next guess,...:bgrin:
Good to hear from you QWORD,...
