Syntax


HRESULT get_ConnectionString(
  [out, retval]  LPWSTR *pwszConnectionString
);

Parameters

pwszConnectionString [out, retval]

Type: LPWSTR*

Receives a pointer to a null-terminated Unicode string that is a valid OLE DB connection string. This connection string can be used to initialize a connection to the Windows Search index and submit the SQL query returned by ISearchQueryHelper::GenerateSQLFromUserQuery.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Remarks

A connection string is a string version of the initialization properties needed to connect to a data store. The string can include such things as a data source, data source name, or user ID and password.

The DSearch code sample, available on Code Gallery and the Windows 7 SDK, demonstrates how to create a class for a static console application to query Windows Search using the Microsoft.Search.Interop assembly for ISearchQueryHelper.
