This function retrieves information about an object in the object store on a remote Windows Embedded CE–based device.

This method has been deprecated. Use CeOidGetInfoEx instead.

BOOL CeOidGetInfo(
  CEOID oid, 
  CEOIDINFO * poidInfo 


[in] Identifier of the object for which information is to be retrieved.


[out] Pointer to a CEOIDINFO structure that contains information about the object.

Nonzero indicates success. Zero indicates failure. To get extended error information, call CeGetLastError and CeRapiGetError. CeGetLastError may return ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE if the specified object identifier is invalid.

Use the CeOidGetInfo function to retrieve information about any object in the object store database or file system.

Earlier versions of Windows Embedded CE assigned object identifiers to objects in other file systems, such as the file allocation table (FAT) file system. These object identifiers were guaranteed to be unique within a volume, but not across multiple volumes. Effective with version 3.0, only objects in the object store have valid, unique object identifiers and the object store is the only volume that can return an object identifier.
