This chapter showed you how to share data in Windows 98 using OLE. I gave you an extensive look at OLE theory—including compound documents, objects, linking, and embedding—and then I showed you how to put OLE to good use in your applications.
Here's a list of chapters where you'll find related information:
To refresh your memory on some Registry basics, head for Chapter 12, “Getting to Know the Windows 98 Registry.”
You're using OLE when you cut, copy, and paste files and when you create shortcuts. I showed you how to do all these things in Chapter 14, “File and Folder Tricks and Techniques.”
I'll show you how to share data between Windows and DOS applications in Chapter 23, “DOS Isn't Dead: Unleashing the DOS Shell.”
