I'm running WRQ's Reflection telnet client
(win32com.client.Dispatch("Reflection2.Session")). It appears I can
only do late binding. There is one method that takes a ``string
array,'' and fails with:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
File "Reflection.py", line 549, in goto_switch
result = self.connection.WaitForStrings(waitfor_strngs)
File "Reflection.py", line 399, in WaitForStrings
File "<COMObject Reflection2.Session>", line 2, in WaitForStrings
com_error: (-2147352571, 'Type mismatch.', None, 1)
I've tried providing lists and tuples of strings, lists and tuples of
makepy -i reports:
Warning - could not load registered typelib
Without the -i, it creates CLSID
0DE5A6C0-4B0D-101B-AC7B-04021C007002.py, but when I run the telnet
client, COM Browser says it's F29799A0-4B0C-101B-AC7B-04021C007002
(off a bit). The 0DE...py module mentions this CLSID F29...
I tried renaming and importing the 0DE...py file, but I still get the
In short, is there something specific I need to do in order to pass a
``string array'' from Python to a COM server when I'm (I think) stuck
with late binding?
PS. Please reply to this group as I get a ton of spam.
