The lineNegotiateExtVersion function allows an application to negotiate an extension version to use with the specified line device. This operation need not be called if the application does not support extensions.
LONG lineNegotiateExtVersion( HLINEAPP hLineApp, DWORD dwDeviceID, DWORD dwAPIVersion, DWORD dwExtLowVersion, DWORD dwExtHighVersion, LPDWORD lpdwExtVersion );
Handle to the application's registration with TAPI.
Identifier of the line device to be queried.
TAPI version number that was negotiated for the specified line device using lineNegotiateAPIVersion.
Earliest extension version of the extension identifier returned by lineNegotiateAPIVersion with which the application is compliant. The high-order word is the major version number; the low-order word is the minor version number.
Latest extension version of the extension identifier returned by lineNegotiateAPIVersion with which the application is compliant. The high-order word is the major version number; the low-order word is the minor version number.
Pointer to a variable that contains the extension version number that was negotiated. If negotiation succeeds, this number is in the range between dwExtLowVersion and dwExtHighVersion.
Returns zero if the request succeeds or a negative error number if an error occurs. Possible return values are:
LINEERR_BADDEVICEID, LINEERR_NOMEM, LINEERR_INCOMPATIBLEAPIVERSION, LINEERR_NODRIVER, LINEERR_INCOMPATIBLEEXTVERSION, LINEERR_OPERATIONFAILED, LINEERR_INVALAPPHANDLE, LINEERR_RESOURCEUNAVAIL, LINEERR_INVALPOINTER, LINEERR_UNINITIALIZED, LINEERR_NODEVICE, LINEERR_OPERATIONUNAVAIL.
Use lineInitializeEx to determine the number of line devices present in the system. The device identifier specified by dwDeviceID varies from zero to one less than the number of line devices present.
The lineNegotiateAPIVersion function negotiates the API version number to use. It also retrieves the extension identifier supported by the line device, which is zeros if no extensions are provided. Version numbers should be incremented by one for each release. Leaving gaps in release version numbering can cause unexpected results.
If the application wants to use the extensions defined by the returned extension identifier, it must call lineNegotiateExtVersion to negotiate the extension version to use.
The extension version number negotiated is that under which the application and service provider must both operate. If version ranges do not overlap, the application and service provider versions are incompatible and an error is returned.
