The IDL_IDLBridge::Init method initializes an IDL_IDLBridge object, which provides a means of controlling the corresponding IDL child process.

Note: A startup file is not automatically executed when a child process is created. To manually run a startup file, see Executing a Batch File in a Child Process for more information.

Note: Init methods are special life cycle methods, and as such cannot be called outside the context of object creation. This means that in most cases you cannot call the Init method directly. There is one exception to this rule: If you write your own subclass of this class, you can call the Init method from within the Init method of the subclass.


Obj = OBJ_NEW('IDL_IDLBridge' [, PROPERTY=value] )


Result = Obj->[IDL_IDLBridge::]Init( [, PROPERTY=value] ) (In a subclass' Init method only)




Any property listed under IDL_IDLBridge Properties that contains the word “Yes” in the “Init” column of the properties table can be initialized during object creation using this method. To initialize the value of a property, specify the property name as a keyword set equal to the appropriate property value.
