IWMSDataSourcePlugin.DeleteDirectory (Visual Basic .NET)

The server calls the DeleteDirectory method to remove a directory data container.

IWMSDataSourcePlugin.DeleteDirectory(  pszContainerName As String,
  dwFlags As UInt32,
  pCallback As IWMSDataSourcePluginCallback,
  qwContext As UInt64


String containing the directory path.

UInt32 containing the flags.

IWMSDataSourcePluginCallbackIWMSDataSourcePluginCallback Object (Visual Basic .NET) containing the callback function. The plug-in calls IWMSDataSourcePluginCallback.OnDeleteDirectory to return the results to the server.

ulong containing a value defined by the server to identify which DeleteDirectory request the plug-in is responding to when it calls IWMSDataSourcePluginCallback.OnDeleteDirectory. The plug-in must pass this value back unaltered.

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 (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.
