IRpcStubBuffer::IsIIDSupported method

Determines whether a stub is designed to handle the unmarshaling of a particular interface.


IRpcStubBuffer * IsIIDSupported(
  REFIID riid



The IID of the interface. This parameter cannot be IID_IUnknown.

Return Value

If the stub can handle the indicated interface, then this method returns an IRpcStubBuffer pointer for that interface; otherwise, it returns NULL.


When presented with the need to remote a new IID on a given object, the RPC run time typically calls this method on all the presently-connected interface stubs in an attempt to locate one that can handle the marshaling for the request before it goes to the trouble of creating a new stub.

As in IPSFactoryBuffer::CreateStub, if a stub is presently connected to a server object, then not only must this method verify that the stub can handle the indicated interface, but it must also verify (using QueryInterface) that the connected server object in fact supports the indicated interface. Depending on the IID and previous interface servicing requests, it may have already done so.
