IPersistFolder interface

Exposes a method that initializes Shell folder objects.

Methods

The IPersistFolder interface has these methods.

Method Description
IPersistFolder::Initialize Instructs a Shell folder object to initialize itself based on the information passed.

Remarks

When you implement a Shell namespace extension, specifically the IShellFolder interface, you must implement this interface so the folder object can be initialized. Implementation of this interface is how the folder is told where it is in the Shell namespace.

You do not use this interface directly. It is used by the file system implementation of the IShellFolder::BindToObject interface when it is initializing a Shell folder object.
