Changes an embedded object from the running to the loaded state. Disconnects a linked object from its link source.
HRESULT Close( DWORD dwSaveOption );
Indicates whether the object is to be saved as part of the transition to the loaded state. Valid values are taken from the enumeration OLECLOSE.
This method returns S_OK on success. Other possible return values include the following.
||The user was prompted to save but chose the Cancel button from the prompt message box.|
- If the object has been changed since it was last opened for editing, it should request to be saved, or not, according to instructions specified in dwSaveOption. If the option is to save the object, then it should call its container's IOleClientSite::SaveObject interface.
- If the object has IDataObject::DAdvise connections with ADVF_DATAONSTOP flags, then it should send an IAdviseSink::OnDataChange notification. See IDataObject::DAdvise for details.
- If the object currently owns the Clipboard, it should empty it by calling OleFlushClipboard.
- If the object is currently visible, notify its container by calling IOleClientSite::OnShowWindow with the fshow argument set to FALSE.
- Send IAdviseSink::OnClose notifications to appropriate advise sinks.
- Finally, forcibly cut off all remoting clients by calling CoDisconnectObject.
Calling IOleObject::Close on a linked object disconnects it from, but does not shut down, its source application. A source application that is visible to the user when the object is closed remains visible and running after the disconnection and does not send an IAdviseSink::OnClose notification to the link container.
