NdisCoGetTapiCallId retrieves a string that TAPI applications can use to identify a particular NDIS virtual connection (VC).
NDIS_STATUS NdisCoGetTapiCallId( NDIS_HANDLE NdisVcHandle, PVAR_STRING TapiCallId );
Specifies the NDIS handle to the VC. This handle was supplied by NDIS when the VC was originally created with the NdisCoCreateVc function.
Pointer to a caller-allocated buffer that receives a data structure of type VAR_STRING. Upon successful return, this structure describes a string that TAPI applications can use to identify the VC.
Returns one of the following status values:
||NDIS successfully returned a string identifier for the VC.|
||The ulTotalSize member of the VAR_STRING structure specifies that the size of the buffer is not large enough to hold the string that identifies the VC. NdisCoGetTapiCallId sets the ulNeededSize member of the VAR_STRING structure to the required size in bytes.|
||The handle to the VC specified by NdisVcHandle is not valid.|
Suppose a call manager calls NdisCoCreateVc to create a VC for a TAPI call. NDIS in turn supplies the handle to the VC to a client. The client passes this VC handle in a call to the NdisCoGetTapiCallId function to retrieve a string that identifies the VC. The client can pass this string identifier to a TAPI application to identify the VC.
The client creates a context for each VC that it manages. The client uses NdisCoGetTapiCallId to retrieve a string identifier for each VC. The client passes each string identifier to a TAPI application to identify each VC. Later, if a TAPI application passes one of these string identifiers down to the client in a VC-related operation, the client must pass this string identifier as a Unicode string in a call to NdisClGetProtocolVcContextFromTapiCallId to get back the correct context for the VC.
