_KF_REDIRECT_FLAGS enumeration (shobjidl_core.h)

Flags used by IKnownFolderManager::Redirect to specify details of a known folder redirection such as permissions and ownership for the redirected folder.

Syntax

typedef enum _KF_REDIRECT_FLAGS {
  KF_REDIRECT_USER_EXCLUSIVE = 0x1,
  KF_REDIRECT_COPY_SOURCE_DACL = 0x2,
  KF_REDIRECT_OWNER_USER = 0x4,
  KF_REDIRECT_SET_OWNER_EXPLICIT = 0x8,
  KF_REDIRECT_CHECK_ONLY = 0x10,
  KF_REDIRECT_WITH_UI = 0x20,
  KF_REDIRECT_UNPIN = 0x40,
  KF_REDIRECT_PIN = 0x80,
  KF_REDIRECT_COPY_CONTENTS = 0x200,
  KF_REDIRECT_DEL_SOURCE_CONTENTS = 0x400,
  KF_REDIRECT_EXCLUDE_ALL_KNOWN_SUBFOLDERS = 0x800
} ;

Constants

 
KF_REDIRECT_USER_EXCLUSIVE
Value: 0x1
Ensure that only the user has permission to access the redirected folder.
KF_REDIRECT_COPY_SOURCE_DACL
Value: 0x2
Copy the DACL of the source folder to the target to maintain current access permissions.
KF_REDIRECT_OWNER_USER
Value: 0x4
Sets the user as the owner of a newly created target folder unless the user is a member of the Administrator group, in which case Administrator is set as the owner. Must be called with KF_REDIRECT_SET_OWNER_EXPLICIT.
KF_REDIRECT_SET_OWNER_EXPLICIT
Value: 0x8
Set the owner of a newly created target folder. If the user belongs to the Administrators group, Administrators is assigned as the owner. Must be called with KF_REDIRECT_OWNER_USER.
KF_REDIRECT_CHECK_ONLY
Value: 0x10
Do not perform a redirection, simply check whether redirection has occurred. If so, IKnownFolderManager::Redirect returns S_OK; if not, or if some actions remain to be completed, it returns S_FALSE.
KF_REDIRECT_WITH_UI
Value: 0x20
Display UI during the redirection.
KF_REDIRECT_UNPIN
Value: 0x40
Unpin the source folder.
KF_REDIRECT_PIN
Value: 0x80
Pin the target folder.
KF_REDIRECT_COPY_CONTENTS
Value: 0x200
Copy the existing contents—both files and subfolders—of the known folder to the redirected folder.
KF_REDIRECT_DEL_SOURCE_CONTENTS
Value: 0x400
Delete the contents of the source folder after they have been copied to the redirected folder. This flag is valid only if KF_REDIRECT_COPY_CONTENTS is set.
KF_REDIRECT_EXCLUDE_ALL_KNOWN_SUBFOLDERS
Value: 0x800
Reserved. Do not use.

Remarks

The KF_REDIRECT_OWNER_USER and KF_REDIRECT_SET_OWNER_EXPLICIT flags provide ownership checks for the target folder, if that folder exists. By default, IKnownFolderManager::Redirect does not perform ownership checks. KF_REDIRECT_OWNER_USER and KF_REDIRECT_SET_OWNER_EXPLICIT are only valid if called together.

The KF_REDIRECT_FLAGS type is defined in Shobjidl.h as shown here.

typedef DWORD KF_REDIRECT_FLAGS;
