IObjectWithSelection::GetSelection method (shobjidl_core.h)

Gets the Shell item array that contains the selected items.

Syntax

HRESULT GetSelection(
  REFIID riid,
  void   **ppv
);

Parameters

riid

Type: REFIID

A reference to the IID of the interface to retrieve through ppv, typically IID_IShellItemArray.

ppv

Type: void**

When this method returns successfully, contains the interface pointer requested in riid. This is typically an IShellItemArray.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

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

Remarks

We recommend that you use the IID_PPV_ARGS macro, defined in Objbase.h, to package the riid and ppv parameters. This macro provides the correct IID based on the interface pointed to by the value in ppv, which eliminates the possibility of a coding error in riid that could lead to unexpected results.
