IOleDocumentSite interface (docobj.h)

Enables a document that has been implemented as a document object to bypass the normal activation sequence for in-place-active objects and to directly instruct its client site to activate it as a document object. A client site with this ability is called a document site.

For each document object to be hosted, a container must provide a corresponding document site, which is an OLE Documents client site that, in addition to implementing IOleClientSite and IAdviseSink, also implements IOleDocumentSite. Each document site implements a separate document view site object for each view of a document to be activated. The document view site implements IOleInPlaceSite and, optionally, IContinueCallback.


The IOleDocumentSite interface inherits from the IUnknown interface. IOleDocumentSite also has these types of members:


The IOleDocumentSite interface has these methods.


Asks a document site to activate the document making the call as a document object rather than an in-place-active object and, optionally, specifies which view of the object document to activate.
