ISyncChangeBatchBase2::SerializeWithOptions

SQL Server 2008 R2

Serializes the change batch object data to a byte array based on the specified version and serialization options.


HRESULT SerializeWithOptions(
  SYNC_SERIALIZATION_VERSION targetFormatVersion,
  DWORD dwFlags,
  BYTE * pbBuffer,
  DWORD * pdwSerializedSize);

Parameters

Term

Definition

targetFormatVersion

[in] The serialized change batch is compatible with this version.

dwFlags

[in] Reserved. Must be 0.

pbBuffer

[in, out, unique, size_is(*pdwSerializedSize)] The serialized change batch object data is serialized to this buffer.

pdwSerializedSize

[in, out] Specifies the number of bytes in pBuffer. Returns either the number of bytes that are required to serialize the change batch data when pBuffer is too small, or the number of bytes written.

  • S_OK.

  • E_INVALIDARG when dwFlags is not 0, or when the version that is specified by targetFormatVersion is incompatible with the change batch object data.

  • E_OUTOFMEMORY.

  • E_POINTER.

  • HRESULT_FROM_WIN32(ERROR_MORE_DATA) when pBuffer is too small. In this situation, the required number of bytes is returned in pdwSerializedSize.

  • SYNC_E_INVALID_OPERATION when the change batch contains a group that was started but not ended.

  • SYNC_E_INVALID_VERSION when the value of targetFormatVersion is higher than the version of the object, or the object contains elements that are not compatible with targetFormatVersion.

The value of targetFormatVersion determines the format of the serialized change batch data. When SYNC_SERIALIZATION_VERSION_V1 is specified, the serialized format is compatible with Sync Framework 1.0 and later components. When SYNC_SERIALIZATION_VERSION_V2 is specified, the serialized format is compatible with Sync Framework 2.0 components. If SYNC_SERIALIZATION_VERSION_V2 is specified when the change batch object contains elements that are not compatible with Sync Framework 1.0, E_INVALIDARG or SYNC_E_INVALID_OPERATION is returned.

NoteNote

Serializing to the Sync Framework 1.0 format is less efficient than the Sync Framework 2.0 format. Unless there is a specific need for the Sync Framework 1.0 format, the Sync Framework 2.0 format should be used.

The serialized change batch that is contained in pbBuffer is stored in compact form, with no padding, in big-endian byte order. The serialized change batch contains the following elements, in the following order.

  1. One header section. The header section contains the following elements.
