Notify Objects for Network Components

A notify object processes notifications that are sent by the network configuration subsystem to the object on behalf of a specific network component. A notify object is served up by a dynamic-link library (DLL). A notify object is used to display Property pages for a network component and to give that component programmatic control over the network configuration.

Note A network component does not generally require a notify object if both of the following conditions are true:

  • A network component can be installed and removed through its information (INF) file

  • Reacting to changes in network configuration is not a requirement

The following sections describe notify objects and explain how to develop them:
