IWMSDataContainerVersion.GetLastModifiedTime (Visual Basic .NET)

IWMSDataContainerVersion.GetLastModifiedTime(  ByRef pdateLastModifiedTime As DateTime


Reference to a DateTime containing the date and time at which the container was last modified.

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


If the SetLastModifiedTime method has never been called, the GetLastModifiedTime method returns zero. Any data containers based on standard file systems (for example, NTFS) must have a last modified time. But it is possible for a custom-defined data container to not have one.
