WinBioEnrollDiscard function

Ends the enrollment sequence and discards a pending biometric template.

Syntax


HRESULT WINAPI WinBioEnrollDiscard(
  _In_  WINBIO_SESSION_HANDLE SessionHandle
);

Parameters

SessionHandle [in]

A WINBIO_SESSION_HANDLE value that identifies an open biometric session. Open a synchronous session handle by calling WinBioOpenSession. Open an asynchronous session handle by calling WinBioAsyncOpenSession.

Return value

If the function succeeds, it returns S_OK. If the function fails, it returns an HRESULT value that indicates the error. Possible values include, but are not limited to, those in the following table. For a list of common error codes, see Common HRESULT Values.

Return codeDescription
E_ACCESSDENIED

The caller does not have permission to enroll.

E_HANDLE

The session handle is not valid.

WINBIO_E_LOCK_VIOLATION

The biometric unit is in use and is locked.

 

Remarks

You can use this function to allow a user to stop an enrollment sequence before saving a biometric template to the template database.

To use WinBioEnrollDiscard synchronously, call the function with a session handle created by calling WinBioOpenSession. The function blocks until the operation completes or an error is encountered.

To use WinBioEnrollDiscard asynchronously, call the function with a session handle created by calling WinBioAsyncOpenSession. The framework allocates a WINBIO_ASYNC_RESULT structure and uses it to return information about operation success or failure. The WINBIO_ASYNC_RESULT structure is returned to the application callback or to the application message queue, depending on the value you set in the NotificationMethod parameter of the WinBioAsyncOpenSession function:

  • If you choose to receive completion notices by using a callback, you must implement a PWINBIO_ASYNC_COMPLETION_CALLBACK function and set the NotificationMethod parameter to WINBIO_ASYNC_NOTIFY_CALLBACK.
  • If you choose to receive completion notices by using the application message queue, you must set the NotificationMethod parameter to WINBIO_ASYNC_NOTIFY_MESSAGE. The framework returns a WINBIO_ASYNC_RESULT pointer to the LPARAM field of the window message.

To prevent memory leaks, you must call WinBioFree to release the WINBIO_ASYNC_RESULT structure after you have finished using it.

Examples

The following function enrolls a biometric template in the system pool. You can pass a Boolean value to the function which enables you to discard an enrollment by calling WinBioEnrollDiscard. Link to the Winbio.lib static library and include the following header files:

  • Windows.h
  • Stdio.h
  • Conio.h
  • Winbio.h
