IExplorerCommandState interface (shobjidl_core.h)

Exposes a single method that allows retrieval of the command state.


The IExplorerCommandState interface inherits from the IUnknown interface. IExplorerCommandState also has these types of members:


The IExplorerCommandState interface has these methods.


Gets the command state associated with a specified Shell item.


When to Implement

Implement this interface when you need to determine the command state dynamically (for instance, based on an item's properties). This interface provides the same functionality as IExplorerCommand::GetState, without the overhead of that interface's additional methods. Implement IExplorerCommandState when you only need to compute the command state.

When to Use

Do not call the method of IExplorerCommandState directly. Windows Explorer calls your IExplorerCommandState::GetState implementation when the user wants to perform an action on the item.
