IDsDisplaySpecifier::IsClassContainer method (dsclient.h)

The IDsDisplaySpecifier::IsClassContainer method determines if a given object class is a container.

Syntax

BOOL IsClassContainer(
  [in] LPCWSTR pszObjectClass,
  [in] LPCWSTR pszADsPath,
  [in] DWORD   dwFlags
);

Parameters

[in] pszObjectClass

Pointer to a null-terminated Unicode string that contains the name of the object class to determine if it is a container. Examples of the object class name are "user" and "container".

[in] pszADsPath

Pointer to a null-terminated Unicode string that contains the ADsPath of a class object that can be bound to in the display specifier container and whose schema data can be obtained.

[in] dwFlags

Contains flags that modify the behavior of this method. This can be zero or the following flag.

DSICCF_IGNORETREATASLEAF

The treatAsLeaf attribute in the display specifier is ignored and only the schema data is used to determine if the class is a container.

Return value

Returns TRUE if the specified class is a container. Otherwise it returns FALSE.

Remarks

The method uses the schema data and/or the treatAsLeaf attribute of the display specifier to determine if an object class is a container. The object class is determined to be a container if the schema indicates that the class can contain other objects. The treatAsLeaf attribute of the display specifier can be used to override the schema indicator.
