COM Functions
PHP Manual


(PHP 4)

com_invokeCalls a COM component's method [deprecated]


mixed com_invoke ( resource $com_object , string $function_name [, mixed $function_parameters ] )

com_invoke() invokes the method named function_name of the COM component referenced by com_object . com_invoke() returns FALSE on error, returns the function_name 's return value on success. All the extra parameters function_parameters are passed to the method function_name .

Example #1 Don't use com_invoke(), use OO syntax instead

// do this
$val $obj->method($one$two);
// instead of this:
$val com_invoke($obj'method'$one$two);

Note: This function does not exist in PHP 5; instead, you should use the regular and more natural OO syntax to access properties or call methods.
