FwpmLayerCreateEnumHandle0 function (fwpmu.h)

The FwpmLayerCreateEnumHandle0 function creates a handle used to enumerate a set of layer objects.

Syntax

DWORD FwpmLayerCreateEnumHandle0(
  [in]           HANDLE                          engineHandle,
  [in, optional] const FWPM_LAYER_ENUM_TEMPLATE0 *enumTemplate,
  [out]          HANDLE                          *enumHandle
);

Parameters

[in] engineHandle

Type: HANDLE

Handle for an open session to the filter engine. Call FwpmEngineOpen0 to open a session to the filter engine.

[in, optional] enumTemplate

Type: FWPM_LAYER_ENUM_TEMPLATE0*

Template to selectively restrict the enumeration.

[out] enumHandle

Type: HANDLE*

Handle for the layer enumeration.

Return value

Type: DWORD

Return code/value Description
ERROR_SUCCESS
0
The enumerator was created successfully.
FWP_E_* error code
0x80320001—0x80320039
A Windows Filtering Platform (WFP) specific error. See WFP Error Codes for details.
RPC_* error code
0x80010001—0x80010122
Failure to communicate with the remote or local firewall engine.

Remarks

If enumTemplate is NULL, all layers are returned.

The enumerator is not "live", meaning it does not reflect changes made to the system after the call to FwpmLayerCreateEnumHandle0 returns. If you need to ensure that the results are current, you must call FwpmLayerCreateEnumHandle0 and FwpmLayerEnum0 from within the same explicit transaction.

The caller must free the returned handle by a call to the FwpmLayerDestroyEnumHandle0.

The caller needs FWPM_ACTRL_ENUM access to the layers' containers and FWPM_ACTRL_READ access to the layers. Only layers to which the caller has FWPM_ACTRL_READ access will be returned. See Access Control for more information.

FwpmLayerCreateEnumHandle0 is a specific implementation of FwpmLayerCreateEnumHandle. See WFP Version-Independent Names and Targeting Specific Versions of Windows for more information.
