WinBioUnregisterEventMonitor function

The WinBioUnregisterEventMonitor function cancels event notifications from the service provider associated with an open biometric session.

Syntax


HRESULT WINAPI WinBioUnregisterEventMonitor(
  _In_  WINBIO_SESSION_HANDLE SessionHandle
);

Parameters

SessionHandle [in]

A WINBIO_SESSION_HANDLE value that identifies the open biometric session. Open the session handle by calling WinBioOpenSession.

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

Call the WinBioRegisterEventMonitor function to begin receiving event notifications.

If an application registers a WinBio event monitor and leaves that monitor active during a sleep/wake cycle, systems that implement biometric pre-boot authentication (PBA)/single sign-on features may not always work. The problem is that the PBA biometric call is intercepted by the event monitor before the system's biometric credential provider has a chance to perform its first WinBioIdentify operation. Apps that use the WinBio event monitoring feature should unregister their monitors before the system sleeps, and re-register them after system wakeup. For more information on handling events during power state changes, see About Power Management.

Examples

The following function registers an event monitor by calling the WinBioRegisterEventMonitor function and passing the address of a callback routine. The callback, also included, receives event notifications from the Windows biometric framework. The function also calls WinBioUnregisterEventMonitor before closing the biometric session. Link to the Winbio.lib static library and include the following header files:

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