CeFindNextDatabase (RAPI) (Windows CE 5.0)

Send Feedback

This function retrieves the next database in an enumeration context.

CeFindNextDatabase is a remote application interface (RAPI), which enables an application running on a desktop computer to make function calls on a Windows CE–based device.



Return Values

The object identifier of the next database to be enumerated indicates success. Zero indicates that there are no more databases are left to enumerate, or that an error occurred. To get extended error information within a RAPI program, call CeGetLastError. Possible values for CeGetLastError include the following.

Value Description
ERROR_NO_MORE_ITEMS The object store contains no more databases to enumerate.
ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER The hEnum parameter specified an invalid handle.


To find all matching databases, CeFindNextDatabase (RAPI) is called in a loop until 0 is returned. If a database is deleted during an enumeration, CeFindNextDatabase (RAPI) fails and returns ERROR_KEY_DELETED. If this error occurs, you must restart the enumeration with a call to CeFindFirstDatabase (RAPI).

Note   Earlier versions of Windows CE assigned object identifiers to objects in other file systems, such as the file allocation table (FAT) file system. These object identifiers were guaranteed to be unique within a volume, but not across multiple volumes. Effective with version 3.0, only objects in the object store have valid, unique object identifiers and the object store is the only volume that can return an object identifier.
