Here’s some interesting code to run. It starts Microsoft Word and binds some Fox code to some Word events.

Type some text into the document. Select some text.

 

When the Selection Change event occurs, the Foxpro code creates the speech API object and speaks out loud the currently selected text.

 

 

 

ow = CREATEOBJECTex("word.application","","")

omyevents = CREATEOBJECT('myevents')

omyevents.ow = ow

?EVENTHANDLER(ow,omyevents)

ow.visible = .t.

ow.Activate

ow.Documents.Add

*ow.Quit

 

DEFINE CLASS myevents as Custom

      oSapi=0

      implements applicationevents2 IN "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\msword.olb"

      ow = .null.

      PROCEDURE applicationevents2_startup()

            ?PROGRAM()

      PROCEDURE applicationevents2_quit

            ?PROGRAM()

      procedure applicationevents2_DocumentBeforeClose(Cancel,Doc)
