IObjectWithAppUserModelID::GetAppID method

Retrieves a file type handler's explicit Application User Model ID (AppUserModelID), if one has been declared.

Syntax

HRESULT GetAppID(
  LPWSTR *ppszAppID
);

Parameters

ppszAppID

Type: LPWSTR*

When this method returns, contains the address of the AppUserModelID string assigned to the object.

Return Value

Type: HRESULT

If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Remarks

This method can only retrieve an AppUserModelID explicitly set for the handler. If the handler did not register an explicit AppUserModelID and is relying on a system-assigned AppUserModelID, this method will not retrieve the AppUserModelID. For more information, see Application User Model IDs (AppUserModelIDs).
