_set_purecall_handler, _set_purecall_handler_m

Sets the handler for a pure virtual function call.

_purecall_handler _set_purecall_handler(  
   _purecall_handler function 
); 
_purecall_handler _set_purecall_handler_m(  
   _purecall_handler_mfunction 
);

function

The function to be called when a pure virtual function is called. A _purecall_handler or _purecall_handler_m function should have a void return type.

The previous _purecall_handler. Returns NULL if there was no previous handler.

Use _set_purecall_handler if you want to catch pure virtual functions and report them to the user in a specific way or catch them for debugging purposes.

Because there is one _purecall_handler for the whole process, calling this function immediately impacts all threads. The last caller on any thread sets the handler.

There is a single _set_purecall_handler handler for all dynamically linked DLLs or executables; even if you call _set_purecall_handler your handler may be replaced by another or that you are replacing a handler set by another DLL or executable.

To restore default behavior, call _set_purecall_handler with aNULL argument.

The _set_purecall_handler_m version of the function is for mixed mode CRT.
