ITextStoreACP2::InsertEmbeddedAtSelection method (textstor.h)

Inserts an IDataObject at the insertion point or selection. The client that calls this method must have a read/write lock before inserting an IDataObject object into the document.

Syntax

HRESULT InsertEmbeddedAtSelection(
  DWORD         dwFlags,
  IDataObject   *pDataObject,
  LONG          *pacpStart,
  LONG          *pacpEnd,
  TS_TEXTCHANGE *pChange
);

Parameters

dwFlags

Specifies whether the pacpStart and pacpEnd parameters and the TS_TEXTCHANGE structure will contain the results of the object insertion.

The TF_IAS_NOQUERY and TF_IAS_QUERYONLY flags cannot be combined.

Value Meaning
0
Text insertion will occur, and the pacpStart and pacpEnd parameters will contain the results of the text insertion. The TS_TEXTCHANGE structure must be filled with this flag.
TF_IAS_NOQUERY
Text is inserted, the values of the pacpStart and pacpEnd parameters can be NULL, and the TS_TEXTCHANGE structure must be filled. Use this flag if the results of the text insertion are not required.
TF_IAS_QUERYONLY
Text is not inserted, and the values for the pacpStart and pacpEnd parameter contain the results of the text insertion. The values of these parameters depend on how the application implements text insertion into a document. For more information, see the Remarks section.

Use this flag to view the results of the text insertion without actually inserting the text, for example, to predict the results of collapsing or otherwise adjusting a selection. It is not required that you fill the TS_TEXTCHANGE structure with this flag.

pDataObject

Pointer to the IDataObject object to be inserted.

pacpStart

Pointer to the starting application character position where the object insertion will occur.

pacpEnd

Pointer to the ending application character position where the object insertion will occur. This parameter value will be the same as the value of the pacpStart parameter for an insertion point.

pChange

Pointer to a TS_TEXTCHANGE structure with the following members.

Value Meaning
acpStart
The starting application character position before the object is inserted into the document.
acpOldEnd
The ending application character position before the object is inserted into the document. This value is the same as acpStart for an insertion point. If this value is different from acpStart, then text was selected prior to the object insertion.
acpNewEnd
The ending application character position after the object insertion took place.

Return value

This method can return one of these values.

Value Description
S_OK
The method was successful.
E_INVALIDARG
The pchText parameter is invalid.
TS_E_NOLOCK
The caller does not have a lock on the document.

Remarks

The values of the pacpStart and pacpEnd parameters depend upon how the client application inserts an object into a document. For example, if the application sets the cursor at the start of the object after object insertion, then the value of the pacpStart and pacpEnd parameters is the same as the acpStart member of the TS_TEXTCHANGE structure.
