IWMSCacheProxy.FindCacheItem (C#)

The FindCacheItem method is called by the server to retrieve an IWMSCacheItemDescriptorIWMSCacheItemDescriptor Object (C#) that contains information about a specific cache item.

void IWMSCacheProxy.FindCacheItem(
  string bstrOriginUrl,
  ref IWMSCacheItemDescriptor ppCacheItemDescriptor


[in] string containing the origin URL.

[out] Reference to an IWMSCacheItemDescriptor object containing the size, version number, and expiration date of a specific cache item.

Return Value

This method does not return a value. To report an error, the plug-in can throw a COMException object to the server. If the plug-in uses the IWMSEventLogIWMSEventLog Object (C#) 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.
