[out] ppManufacturerMetadata

Reference to a WSD_THIS_MODEL_METADATA structure that specifies manufacturer and model-specific metadata. Do not release this object.

Return value

This method can return one of these values.

Possible return values include, but are not limited to, the following.

Return code Description
Method completed successfully.
ppManufacturerMetadata is NULL.


GetThisModelMetadata will not cause the device proxy to retrieve metadata from the device. Instead, GetThisModelMetadata will return the metadata retrieved with the last call to BeginGetMetadata and EndGetMetadata. If neither of these methods has been called, GetThisModelMetadata will return the metadata retrieved when the IWSDDeviceProxy object was initialized.

Upon success, the memory at ppMetadata will be valid until BeginGetMetadata or EndGetMetadata is called or until the IWSDDeviceProxy object is released.
