How to use COM (Component Object Model) in Golang

I have a Windows DLL (XA_Session.dll) file but I don't know how to use it in golang.

I want to use the ConnectServer COM Method.

Here is my code

package main import ( "syscall" "fmt" ) var ( mod = syscall.NewLazyDLL("XA_Session.dll") proc = mod.NewProc("DllGetClassObject") ) func main() { var bConnect bool bConnect = proc.ConnectServer("hts.ebestsec.co.kr", 20001) if bConnect { fmt.Println("Success") } else { fmt.Println("Fail") } }

compile error:

.\main.go:17: proc.ConnectServer undefined (type *syscall.LazyProc has no field or method ConnectServer)


I had a similar problem in my Direct3D9 Go wrapper, see this thread, where I was able to call DirectX COM functions from pure Go.

In your code you try to call proc.ConnectServer(...) but the way to call a syscall.LazyProc is with its Call function. Looking at the documentation for DllGetClassObject, the signature is

HRESULT __stdcall DllGetClassObject( _In_ REFCLSID rclsid, _In_ REFIID riid, _Out_ LPVOID *ppv );

This means you have to pass these three parameters to proc.Call as uintptrs (Call expects all arguments to be uintptrs).

package main import "syscall" var ( xaSession = syscall.NewLazyDLL("XA_Session.dll") getClassObject = xaSession.NewProc("DllGetClassObject") ) func main() { // TODO set these variables to the appropriate values var rclsid, riid, ppv uintptr ret, _, _ := getClassObject.Call(rclsid, riid, ppv) // ret is the HRESULT value returned by DllGetClassObject, check it for errors }

Note that you need to set the parameter values correctly, the CLSID and IID may be contained in the accompanying C header file for the library, I don't know this XA_Session library.

The ppv will in this case be a pointer to the COM object that you created. To use COM methods from Go, you can create wrapper types, given you know all the COM methods defined by it and their correct order. All COM objects support the QueryInterface, AddRef and Release functions and then additional, type specific methods.

Let's say your XA_Session object additionally supports these two functions (again, I don't know what it really supports, you have to look that up)

int ConnectServer(int id) DisconnectServer()

then what you can do to wrap that in Go is the following:

package xasession import ( "syscall" "unsafe" ) // NewXASession casts your ppv from above to a *XASession func NewXASession(ppv uintptr) *XASession { return (*XASession)(unsafe.Pointer(ppv)) } // XASession is the wrapper object on which to call the wrapper methods. type XASession struct { vtbl *xaSessionVtbl } type xaSessionVtbl struct { // every COM object starts with these three QueryInterface uintptr AddRef uintptr Release uintptr // here are all additional methods of this COM object ConnectServer uintptr DisconnectServer uintptr } func (obj *XASession) AddRef() uint32 { ret, _, _ := syscall.Syscall( obj.vtbl.AddRef, 1, uintptr(unsafe.Pointer(obj)), 0, 0, ) return uint32(ret) } func (obj *XASession) Release() uint32 { ret, _, _ := syscall.Syscall( obj.vtbl.Release, 1, uintptr(unsafe.Pointer(obj)), 0, 0, ) return uint32(ret) } func (obj *XASession) ConnectServer(id int) int { ret, _, _ := syscall.Syscall( obj.vtbl.ConnectServer, // function address 2, // number of parameters to this function uintptr(unsafe.Pointer(obj)), // always pass the COM object address first uintptr(id), // then all function parameters follow 0, ) return int(ret) } func (obj *XASession) DisconnectServer() { syscall.Syscall( obj.vtbl.DisconnectServer, 1, uintptr(unsafe.Pointer(obj)), 0, 0, ) }
