WinBioWait function

Blocks caller execution until all pending biometric operations for a session have been completed or canceled.

Syntax


HRESULT WINAPI WinBioWait(
  _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_HANDLE

The session handle is not valid.

 

Remarks

WinBioWait blocks the caller's thread regardless of whether you pass a synchronous or an asynchronous session handle to the SessionHandle parameter.

Unlike all other functions that can be called by using an asynchronous session handle, the framework does not create a WINBIO_ASYNC_RESULT structure for the WinBioWait function.

Do not call WinBioWait from the context of a callback routine or from any function that can be called indirectly from a callback routine. Doing so will cause a permanent deadlock.

Do not call WinBioWait from a window procedure. Doing so will cause the user interface to freeze until the event notification arrives.

If you call WinBioWait from an asynchronous session that generates window messages, there is no guarantee of the order in which the window message and the wake-from-wait message will arrive. We recommend that you not write any code that depends on the order of these events.

Examples

The following code example shows how to call the WinBioWait function to block execution and wait for an asynchronous thread to finish processing. Link to the Winbio.lib static library and include the following header files:

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

HRESULT CaptureSampleWithCallback(BOOL bCancel)
{
    HRESULT hr = S_OK;

            WINBIO_TYPE_FINGERPRINT,    // Service provider
            WINBIO_POOL_SYSTEM,         // Pool type
            WINBIO_FLAG_RAW,            // Raw access

            0,                          // Count of biometric unit IDs
            WINBIO_DB_DEFAULT,          // Default database
            &sessionHandle              // [out] Session handle
