The IPrintCoreHelperPS::GetFeatureAttribute method retrieves the feature attribute list or the value of a specific feature attribute.
HRESULT GetFeatureAttribute( PCSTR pszFeatureKeyword, PCSTR pszAttribute, PDWORD pdwDataType, PBYTE *ppbData, PDWORD pcbSize );
A pointer to a caller-supplied buffer that contains an ANSI string that specifies the feature keyword to query for. This value can be obtained from a prior call to IPrintCoreHelperPS::EnumFeatures.
A pointer to a caller-supplied buffer that contains an ANSI string that specifies the attribute that was requested. If this parameter is NULL, the caller is requesting a list of all of the supported feature attribute names instead of specifying a specific feature attribute name.
A pointer to a variable that receives a value that specifies the data type of the requested attribute. This value is an enumerator of the EATTRIBUTE_DATATYPE enumeration type, which is defined in printoem.h.
A pointer to a variable that receives the size, in bytes, of the buffer that is pointed to by the pbData parameter.
IPrintCoreHelperPS::GetFeatureAttribute should return one of the following values.
||The method succeeded.|
||The method failed.|
The method attempted to query for a nonexistent attribute.
This value might also mean that the feature keyword was not recognized.
The value in pcbSize was smaller than the number of bytes to be written to the output buffer that is pointed to by pbData.
This value might also mean that the method was called with pbData set to NULL.
If IPrintCoreHelperPS::GetFeatureAttribute is called with its pszAttribute and pbData parameters set to NULL, the method returns with *pcbSize set to the number of bytes that are needed for the list of all of the supported attribute names for the feature. If this method is called a second time, with pszAttribute set to NULL and pbData pointing to a buffer of the size that was specified in *pcbSize in the previous call, the method returns with *pdwDataType set to kADT_ASCII (an enumerator of the EATTRIBUTE_DATATYPE enumeration type) and pbData pointing to a NULL-delimited list of all of the supported attribute names for the feature. This list is terminated with two null characters.
