WIN32OLE_PARAM.new(method, n) → WIN32OLE_PARAM object

Returns WIN32OLE_PARAM object which represents OLE parameter information. 1st argument should be WIN32OLE_METHOD object. 2nd argument `n' is n-th parameter of the method specified by 1st argument.

tobj = WIN32OLE_TYPE.new('Microsoft Scripting Runtime', 'IFileSystem')
method = WIN32OLE_METHOD.new(tobj, 'CreateTextFile')
param = WIN32OLE_PARAM.new(method, 2) # => #<WIN32OLE_PARAM:Overwrite=true>

    }
    idx = FIX2INT(n);
    return oleparam_ole_param(self, olemethod, idx);

WIN32OLE_PARAM#default

Returns default value. If the default value does not exist, this method returns nil.

tobj = WIN32OLE_TYPE.new('Microsoft Excel 9.0 Object Library', 'Workbook')
method = WIN32OLE_METHOD.new(tobj, 'SaveAs')
method.params.each do |param|
  if param.default
    puts "#{param.name} (= #{param.default})"
  else
    puts "#{param}"
