C6309

warning C6309: argument <number> is null: it does not adhere to function specification of <function>

This message indicates that the code is passing an unexpected NULL parameter as an argument to the specified API. Passing a null parameter to a function that expects a non-null parameter can cause unhandled exception.

The following code generates warning 6309 and 6387:

#include <codeanalysis/sourceannotations.h>
using namespace vc_attributes;


void f([Pre(Null=No)] void*);
[returnvalue:Post(Null=Yes)] void* g();

void main()
{
   f(g()); // 6309 and 6387
}

To correct both warnings, use the following code:

#include <codeanalysis/sourceannotations.h>
using namespace vc_attributes;


void f([Pre(Null=No)] void*);
[returnvalue:Post(Null=No)] void* g(); // pointer not null

void main()
{
   f(g());
}
