OLEGETMONIKER enumeration (oleidl.h)

Controls aspects of the behavior of the IOleObject::GetMoniker and IOleClientSite::GetMoniker methods.

Syntax

typedef enum tagOLEGETMONIKER {
  OLEGETMONIKER_ONLYIFTHERE,
  OLEGETMONIKER_FORCEASSIGN,
  OLEGETMONIKER_UNASSIGN,
  OLEGETMONIKER_TEMPFORUSER
} OLEGETMONIKER;

Constants

 
OLEGETMONIKER_ONLYIFTHERE
If a moniker for the object or container does not exist, IOleClientSite::GetMoniker should return E_FAIL and not assign a moniker.
OLEGETMONIKER_FORCEASSIGN
If a moniker for the object or container does not exist, IOleClientSite::GetMoniker should create one.
OLEGETMONIKER_UNASSIGN
IOleClientSite::GetMoniker can release the object's moniker (although it is not required to do so). This constant is not valid in IOleObject::GetMoniker.
OLEGETMONIKER_TEMPFORUSER
If a moniker for the object does not exist, IOleObject::GetMoniker can create a temporary moniker that can be used for display purposes (IMoniker::GetDisplayName) but not for binding. This enables the object server to return a descriptive name for the object without incurring the overhead of creating and maintaining a moniker until a link is actually created.

Remarks

If the OLEGETMONIKER_FORCEASSIGN flag causes a container to create a moniker for the object, the container should notify the object by calling the IOleObject::GetMoniker method.
