I need for implementation of SAFEARRAY type.
In fact there are a lot of methods that use this type.

The problem is the following:

I use the readtlb.py tool for translate a Type Libary into
a python file; the result is a file in which the COM types
are translated according to the ctypes rules. However
the SAFEARRAY type is not recognized by the python
interpreter and I can't instantiate the class(es). Looking
in depth in to the ctypes module there is no evidence of
the SAFEARRAY Implementation.

Thanks

    I have no real need to work on this right now, but I would
    be wiliing to accept patches.
    At minimum, test cases or a sample program would be needed.
    Would you like to work on this?

    I'm having the same problem. I saw some recent threads
    about SAFEARRAYs and so I was wondering if this is going
    to be fixed soon?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    There will be much improved support for SAFEARRAY in comtypes.
