PIBIO_ENGINE_QUERY_INDEX_VECTOR_SIZE_FN callback function (winbio_adapter.h)

Called by the Windows Biometric Framework to retrieve the size of the index vector used by the engine adapter.

Syntax

PIBIO_ENGINE_QUERY_INDEX_VECTOR_SIZE_FN PibioEngineQueryIndexVectorSizeFn;

HRESULT PibioEngineQueryIndexVectorSizeFn(
  PWINBIO_PIPELINE Pipeline,
  PSIZE_T IndexElementCount
)
{...}

Parameters

Pipeline

Pointer to a WINBIO_PIPELINE structure associated with the biometric unit performing the operation.

IndexElementCount

Address of a variable that receives the number of array elements in the index vector.

Return value

If the function succeeds, it returns S_OK. If the function fails, it must return one of the following HRESULT values to indicate the error.

Return code Description
E_POINTER
A mandatory pointer parameter is NULL.

Remarks

The index vector is used by the engine adapter to index the available biometric templates.
