Return value

This function returns the following values:

Standard Success/Error Definitions

Return code Description
OLEUI_FALSE
Unknown failure (unused).
OLEUI_SUCCESS
No error, same as OLEUI_OK.
OLEUI_OK
The user pressed the OK button.
OLEUI_CANCEL
The user has pressed the Cancel button and that the caller should cancel the operation.
OLEUI_BZ_SWITCHTOSELECTED
The user has pressed Switch To and OleUIBusy was unable to determine how to switch to the blocking application. In this case, the caller should either take measures to attempt to resolve the conflict itself, if possible, or retry the operation. OleUIBusy will only return OLEUI_BZ_SWITCHTOSELECTED if the user has pressed the Switch To button, hTask is NULL and the BZ_NOTRESPONDING flag is set.
OLEUI_BZ_SWITCHTOSELECTED
The user has pressed Switch To and OleUIBusy was unable to determine how to switch to the blocking application. In this case, the caller should either take measures to attempt to resolve the conflict itself, if possible, or retry the operation. OleUIBusy will only return OLEUI_BZ_SWITCHTOSELECTED if the user has pressed the Switch To button, hTask is NULL and the BZ_NOTRESPONDING flag is set.
OLEUI_BZ_SWITCHTOSELECTED
The user has pressed Switch To and OleUIBusy was unable to determine how to switch to the blocking application. In this case, the caller should either take measures to attempt to resolve the conflict itself, if possible, or retry the operation. OleUIBusy will only return OLEUI_BZ_SWITCHTOSELECTED if the user has pressed the Switch To button, hTask is NULL and the BZ_NOTRESPONDING flag is set.
OLEUI_BZ_RETRYSELECTED
The user has either pressed the Retry button or attempted to resolve the conflict (probably by switching to the blocking application). In this case, the caller should retry the operation.
OLEUI_BZ_CALLUNBLOCKED
The dialog box has been informed that the operation is no longer blocked.
 

Standard Field Validation Errors

Return code Description
OLEUI_ERR_STANDARDMIN
Errors common to all dialog boxes lie in the range OLEUI_ERR_STANDARDMIN to OLEUI_ERR_STANDARDMAX. This value allows the application to test for standard messages in order to display error messages to the user.
OLEUI_ERR_STRUCTURENULL
The pointer to an OLEUIXXX structure passed into the function was NULL.
OLEUI_ERR_STRUCTUREINVALID
Insufficient permissions for read or write access to an OLEUIXXX structure.
OLEUI_ERR_CBSTRUCTINCORRECT
The cbstruct value is incorrect.
OLEUI_ERR_HWNDOWNERINVALID
The hWndOwner value is invalid.
OLEUI_ERR_LPSZCAPTIONINVALID
The lpszCaption value is invalid.
OLEUI_ERR_LPFNHOOKINVALID
The lpfnHook value is invalid.
OLEUI_ERR_HINSTANCEINVALID
The hInstance value is invalid.
OLEUI_ERR_LPSZTEMPLATEINVALID
The lpszTemplate value is invalid.
OLEUI_ERR_HRESOURCEINVALID
The hResource value is invalid.
 

Initialization Errors

Return code Description
OLEUI_ERR_FINDTEMPLATEFAILURE
Unable to find the dialog box template.
OLEUI_ERR_LOADTEMPLATEFAILURE
Unable to load the dialog box template.
OLEUI_ERR_DIALOGFAILURE
Dialog box initialization failed.
OLEUI_ERR_LOCALMEMALLOC
A call to LocalAlloc or the standard IMalloc allocator failed.
OLEUI_ERR_GLOBALMEMALLOC
A call to GlobalAlloc or the standard IMalloc allocator failed.
OLEUI_ERR_LOADSTRING
Unable to call LoadString for the localized resources from the library.
OLEUI_ERR_OLEMEMALLOC
A call to the standard IMalloc allocator failed.
 

Function Specific Errors

Return code Description
OLEUI_ERR_STANDARDMAX
Errors common to all dialog boxes lie in the range OLEUI_ERR_STANDARDMIN to OLEUI_ERR_STANDARDMAX. This value allows the application to test for standard messages in order to display error messages to the user.
OLEUI_BZERR_HTASKINVALID
The hTask specified in the hTask member of the OLEUIBUSY structure is invalid.

Remarks

The standard OLE Server Busy dialog box notifies the user that the server application is not receiving messages. The dialog box then asks the user to cancel the operation, switch to the task that is blocked, or continue waiting.

Note

The oledlg.h header defines OLEUIBUSY as an alias which automatically selects the ANSI or Unicode version of this function based on the definition of the UNICODE preprocessor constant. Mixing usage of the encoding-neutral alias with code that not encoding-neutral can lead to mismatches that result in compilation or runtime errors. For more information, see Conventions for Function Prototypes.
