The GetListContents method initiates the retrieval of the list of media items that appear in a dynamic list.


HRESULT GetListContents(
  BSTR  location,
  VARIANT*  pContext,
  BSTR  bstrListType,
  BSTR  bstrParams,
  DWORD  dwListCookie



[in]  A library location constant that specifies the type of library view that will have its list retrieved. For example, the constant g_szCPListID specifies that a particular list will be retrieved.


[in]  The ID of the specific item that will have its list retrieved. For example, if location is g_szCPListID, then this parameter is the ID of the list that will be retrieved.


[in]  A library location constant that specifies the type of an individual list item. For example, the constant g_szCPAlbumID specifies that the items in the list are albums.


[in]  Parameters, meaningful only to the online store, associated with the retrieved list. See Remarks.


[in]  A cookie used to identify the list retrieval operation. (The plug-in passes this cookie to IWMPContentPartnerCallback::AddListContents and IWMPContentPartnerCallback::ListContentsComplete.)

Return Values

Return code Description
S_OK The method succeeded.


Retrieving list contents is an asynchronous operation. This method should initiate the retrieval and return immediately. Then the plug-in must make one or more calls to IWMPContentPartnerCallback::AddListContents to supply Windows Media Player with the requested list contents. When the plug-in has supplied all the data, it must call IWMPContentPartnerCallback::ListContentsComplete to signal the end of the operation. In each case, the plug-in passes the cookie provided in dwListCookie to identify the correct list retrieval session.
