IAccessibleWindowlessSite::GetParentAccessible method (oleacc.h)

Retrieves an IAccessible pointer for the parent of a windowless Microsoft ActiveX control in the accessibility tree.


HRESULT GetParentAccessible(
  [out, optional] IAccessible **ppParent


[out, optional] ppParent

Type: IAccessible**

Receives the IAccessible pointer for the parent of the windowless ActiveX control.

Return value


If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.


To return its parent IAccessible object, an object that implements IAccessible must be able to implement the get_accParent method. Implementing get_accParent is difficult for a windowless ActiveX control because the control might be unable to determine its location in the accessible tree of the parent object. The GetParentAccessible method enables a windowless ActiveX control to query its site for the parent object, and then return the parent object to the client that called get_accParent.
