IOleObject::SetMoniker method (oleidl.h)

Pointer to where to return the moniker.

A container that supports links to embedded objects must be able to inform an embedded object when its moniker has changed. Otherwise, subsequent attempts by link clients to bind to the object will fail. The IOleObject::SetMoniker method provides one way for a container to communicate this information.
The container can pass either its own moniker, an object's moniker relative to the container, or an object's full moniker. In practice, if a container passes anything other than an object's full moniker, each object calls the container back to request assignment of the full moniker, which the object requires to register itself in the running object table.
The moniker of an object relative to its container is stored by the object handler as part of the object's persistent state. The moniker of the object's container, however, must not be persistently stored inside the object because the container can be renamed at any time.IOleClientSite::GetMoniker to force assignment of a new moniker. IAdviseSink::OnRename notification to all advise sinks that exist for the object.
