ldap_get_next_page_s function

The ldap_get_next_page_s function returns the next page in a sequence of synchronous paged search results.


ULONG ldap_get_next_page_s(
  _In_  PLDAP            ExternalHandle,
  _In_  PLDAPSearch      SearchHandle,
  _In_  struct l_timeval *timeout,
  _In_  ULONG            PageSize,
  _Out_ ULONG            *TotalCount,
  _Out_ LDAPMessage      **Results


ExternalHandle [in]

Session handle.

SearchHandle [in]

Search block handle.

timeout [in]

The time value, in seconds, that the client will wait for the call to return.

PageSize [in]

The number of entries to return in a single page.

TotalCount [out]

The server estimate of the total number of entries in the entire result set. A value of zero indicates that the server cannot provide an estimate.

Results [out]

A pointer to the LDAPMessage structure that contains the results.

Return value

If the server returns a null cookie (non-continuation), the value is LDAP_NO_RESULTS_RETURNED. Otherwise, the client signals a continuation (more data available) by returning LDAP_SUCCESS.

If the function otherwise fails, it returns the error code return value related to the failure. For more information, see Return Values.


The ldap_get_next_page_s function is part of the interface for simple, synchronous paging of search results. Use the search handle returned from an initial call to ldap_search_init_page and specify, in the PageSize parameter, the number of entries to be returned in a page. Set PageSize to zero to quit a search.

The results returned from ldap_get_next_page_s can be handled as any other search result, and should be freed, when finished, by calling ldap_msgfree.

When parsing the results set, it is possible for the server to return an empty page of results and yet still respond with an LDAP_SUCCESS return code. This indicates that the server was unable to retrieve a page of results, due to a timeout or other reason, but has not completed the search request. The proper behavior in this instance is to continue to call ldap_get_next_page_s until either another page of results are successfully retrieved, an error code is returned, or LDAP_NO_RESULTS_RETURNED is returned to indicate the search is complete.

To retrieve paged search result asynchronously, use ldap_get_next_page.

If ldap_get_next_page_s is used, it is not required that ldap_get_paged_count is called to record the number of paged results returned by a server.
