DOT11_EXT_UI_PROPERTY_DISPLAY_INFO structure

The DOT11_EXT_UI_PROPERTY_DISPLAY_INFO structure defines the items that the Native 802.11 IHV UI Extensions DLL adds to the Security tab of the Network Configuration UI.

Syntax


typedef struct _DOT11_EXT_UI_PROPERTY_DISPLAY_INFO {
  DWORD                          dwDataKey;
  DOT11_EXT_UI_DISPLAY_INFO_TYPE dot11ExtUIDisplayInfoType;
  BSTR                           bstrDisplayText;
} DOT11_EXT_UI_PROPERTY_DISPLAY_INFO, *PDOT11_EXT_UI_PROPERTY_DISPLAY_INFO;

Members

dwDataKey

A key value that uniquely identifies the item in the list.

dot11ExtUIDisplayInfoType

The type of the displayed data as defined by a DOT11_EXT_UI_DISPLAY_INFO_TYPE value.

bstrDisplayText

The displayed text for the item in the list.

Remarks

If the Native 802.11 IHV UI Extensions DLL supports an IDot11ExtUIProperty COM Interface for a property type of DOT11_EXT_UI_KEYEXTENSION, the operating system will call the interface's IDot11ExtUIProperty::Dot11ExtUIPropertyGetDisplayInfo method before displaying the property page of the Security tab in the Network Configuration UI. The operating system queries the property page extensions supported by the Native 802.11 IHV UI Extensions DLL by calling the IDot11ExtUI::GetDot11ExtUiProperties method.

The operating system calls this method to populate the Encryption list with IHV-supported extensions. Through this method, the Native 802.11 IHV UI Extensions DLL can return one or more items to add to the Encryption list.

When the end user selects an item from the Encryption list, the operating system will call the IDot11ExtUIProperty::Dot11ExtUIPropertySetDisplayInfo method to pass the relevant IHV-defined profile data to the IHV UI Extensions DLL for processing.
