IBackgroundCopyError interface

Use the
IBackgroundCopyError interface to determine the cause of an error and if the transfer process can proceed.

BITS creates an error object only when the state of the job is BG_JOB_STATE_ERROR or BG_JOB_STATE_TRANSIENT_ERROR. BITS does not create an error object when an IBackgroundCopyXXXX interface method fails. The error object is available until BITS begins transferring data (the state of the job changes to BG_JOB_STATE_TRANSFERRING) for the job or until your application exits.

To get an IBackgroundCopyError object, call the IBackgroundCopyJob::GetError method.


The IBackgroundCopyError interface has these methods.

Method Description
IBackgroundCopyError::GetError Retrieves the error code and identify the context in which the error occurred.
IBackgroundCopyError::GetErrorContextDescription Retrieves the description of the context in which the error occurred.
IBackgroundCopyError::GetErrorDescription Retrieves the error text associated with the error.
IBackgroundCopyError::GetFile Retrieves an interface pointer to the file object associated with the error.
IBackgroundCopyError::GetProtocol Retrieves the protocol used to transfer the file. The remote file name identifies the protocol to use to transfer the file.
