WinBioUnlockUnit function

Releases the session lock on the specified biometric unit.

Syntax


HRESULT WINAPI WinBioUnlockUnit(
  _In_  WINBIO_SESSION_HANDLE SessionHandle,
  _In_  WINBIO_UNIT_ID UnitId
);

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.

UnitId [in]

A WINBIO_UNIT_ID value that specifies the biometric unit to unlock.

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_HANDLE

The session handle is not valid.

E_INVALIDARG

The UnitId parameter cannot contain zero.

WINBIO_E_LOCK_VIOLATION

The biometric unit specified by the UnitId parameter is not currently locked by the session.

 

Remarks

Calling WinBioUnlockUnit automatically releases any locks held by the session. This function will fail if the biometric unit specified by the UnitId has not been previously locked by calling the WinBioLockUnit function.

To use WinBioUnlockUnit 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 WinBioUnlockUnit 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 calls WinBioLockUnit to lock the biometric unit before calling WinBioIdentify to identify the user. It calls WinBioUnlockUnit to unlock the biometric union before closing the open session. Link to the Winbio.lib static library and include the following header files:

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