IWMSDirectory.GetDataSourcePlugin (C#)

The GetDataSourcePlugin method retrieves a reference to the plug-in used to source content from the directory.

void IWMSDirectory.GetDataSourcePlugin(
  ref IWMSDataSourcePlugin ppDataSource
);

Arguments

Reference to an IWMSDataSourcePluginIWMSDataSourcePlugin Object (C#) containing the file system data source plug-in.

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. For more information about plug-in error information, see Identifying Plug-in Errors.

Remarks

The data source plug-in must source from a file system that supports enumeration.
