WFDCloseSession function

The WFDCloseSession function closes a session after a previously successful call to the WFDStartOpenSession function.

Syntax


DWORD WINAPI WFDCloseSession(
  _In_ PHANDLE hSessionHandle
);

Parameters

hSessionHandle [in]

A session handle to a Wi-Fi Direct session. This is a session handle previously returned by the WFDStartOpenSession function.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is ERROR_SUCCESS.

If the function fails, the return value may be one of the following return codes.

Return codeDescription
ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE

The handle is invalid.

This error is returned if the handle specified in the hSessionHandle parameter was not found in the handle table.

ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER

The parameter is incorrect.

This error is returned if the hSessionHandle parameter is NULL or not valid.

ERROR_INVALID_STATE

The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.

This error is returned if the Wi-Fi Direct service is disabled by group policy on a domain.

RPC_STATUS

Various error codes.

 

Remarks

The WFDCloseSession function is part of Wi-Fi Direct, a new feature in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. Wi-Fi Direct is based on the development of the Wi-Fi Peer-to-Peer Technical Specification v1.1 by the Wi-Fi Alliance (see Wi-Fi Alliance Published Specifications). The goal of the Wi-Fi Peer-to-Peer Technical Specification is to provide a solution for Wi-Fi device-to-device connectivity without the need for either a Wireless Access Point (wireless AP) to setup the connection or the use of the existing Wi-Fi adhoc (IBSS) mechanism.

The WFDCloseSession function queues a future work item to close the session, so disconnection may not be immediate.

Calling the WFDCloseSession function while a WFDStartOpenSession call is pending will not close the session.

It is the responsibility of the caller to pass the WFDCloseSession function a handle in the hSessionHandle parameter that was returned from a successful asynchronous call to the WFDStartOpenSession function.

Calling the WFDCloseSession function with a handle that was valid and has become invalid will yield undefined results.
