Return Value

The IParserProperty Class methods return typical HRESULT values. In general, the method should return a positive OK value when successful or a negative FAIL value when unsuccessful.


Returns an error if the property is not of the String data type.

For IParserProperty Class methods, all output parameters of type LPCSTR are valid only as long as the IParserProperty interface pointer remains valid. The method caller should never change or free the memory pointed to by any output parameters of type LPCSTR.

If you call an IParserProperty.Set<datatype> method, then any previously returned output LCPSTR parameter may no longer be valid.
