Provider::ValidateGetObjFlags method

[The Provider class is part of the WMI Provider Framework which is now considered in final state, and no further development, enhancements, or updates will be available for non-security related issues affecting these libraries. The MI APIs should be used for all new development.]

The ValidateGetObjFlags method determines whether a set of flags is valid for an instance retrieval operation.

Syntax

HRESULT ValidateGetObjFlags(
  long lFlags
);

Parameters

lFlags

Bitmask of flags that are validated.

Return Value

Returns WBEM_S_NO_ERROR if the flags are valid and WBEM_E_UNSUPPORTED_PARAMETER if one or more flags are not valid.

Remarks

At present, the Provider class does not support any retrieval flags. Therefore, if lFlags is set to a value other than zero (0), Provider::ValidateGetObjFlags automatically returns WBEM_E_UNSUPPORTED_PARAMETER.

Framework providers must override this method to validate flags that are unknown to the base Provider class.
