(PHP 4)

com_invoke --  Calls 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.
