IWMSEventAuthorizationPlugin.GetAuthorizedEvents (Visual Basic .NET)

The GetAuthorizedEvents method retrieves an array of events that must be authorized by the plug-in.

Object = IWMSEventAuthorizationPlugin.GetAuthorizedEvents()


This method takes no parameters.

Return Value

This method returns an Object containing an array of WMS_EVENT_TYPE enumeration values. To report an error, the plug-in can throw a COMException object to the server. If the plug-in uses the IWMSEventLogIWMSEventLog Object (Visual Basic .NET) to log error information, it is recommended that it throw NS_E_PLUGIN_ERROR_REPORTED (0xC00D157D). Typically, the server attempts to make plug-in error information available to the server object model, the Windows Event Viewer, and the troubleshooting list in the details pane of the Windows Media Services MMC. However, if the plug-in uses the IWMSEventLog object to send custom error information to the Windows Event Viewer, throwing NS_E_PLUGIN_ERROR_REPORTED stops the server from also logging to the event viewer. For more information about plug-in error information, see Identifying Plug-in Errors.


The following example illustrates a possible implementation of the GetAuthorizedEvents method for an access control list (ACL) authorization plug-in.

Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices
Public Function GetAuthorizedEvents() As Object Implements IWMSEventAuthorizationPlugin.GetAuthorizedEvents

    ' Identify the events the plug-in can authorize.
        Dim wmsEvents() As WMS_EVENT_TYPE = New WMS_EVENT_TYPE() _
                     {WMS_EVENT_TYPE.WMS_EVENT_DESCRIBE, _
                      WMS_EVENT_TYPE.WMS_EVENT_OPEN, _

        Return wmsEvents
        Throw New COMException()
    End Try
End Function
