Public Function GetContentReader (path As String) As IContentReader

Parameters

path
String

The path to the item to get the content reader for.

Returns

IContentReader

Remarks

Overrides of this method should return an IContentReader for the item specified by the path.

Providers that declare ProviderCapabilities of ExpandWildcards, Filter, Include, or Exclude should ensure that the path passed meets those requirements by accessing the appropriate property from the base class.

By default overrides of this method should not return a content reader for objects that are generally hidden from the user unless the Force property is set to true. An error should be sent to the WriteError method if the path represents an item that is hidden from the user and Force is set to false.
