INotifyingChangeApplierTarget.SaveItemChange Method

When overridden in a derived class, saves an item change to the item store.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Synchronization
Assembly:  Microsoft.Synchronization (in Microsoft.Synchronization.dll)

void SaveItemChange(
	SaveChangeAction saveChangeAction,
	ItemChange change,
	SaveChangeContext context
)

Parameters

saveChangeAction
Type: Microsoft.Synchronization.SaveChangeAction
The action to be performed for the change.
change
Type: Microsoft.Synchronization.ItemChange
The item change to save.
context
Type: Microsoft.Synchronization.SaveChangeContext
Information about the change to be applied.

The following example shows how to handle some of the most common SaveChangeAction values in the SaveItemChange method.

When a provider uses change units, the SaveItemChange method is called only to handle delete actions, as shown in the following example.

Public Sub SaveItemChange(ByVal saveChangeAction__1 As SaveChangeAction, ByVal change As ItemChange, ByVal context As SaveChangeContext) Implements INotifyingChangeApplierTarget.SaveItemChange
    ' This provider uses change units, so SaveChangeWithChangeUnits is called for all actions except delete actions.
    If SaveChangeAction.DeleteAndStoreTombstone = saveChangeAction__1 Then
        ' Delete the item from the item store and store a tombstone for it in the metadata store.
        Try
            _ContactStore.DeleteContactFromSync(change.ItemId, change.ChangeVersion)
        Catch ex As Exception
            Dim errData As New RecoverableErrorData(ex)
            context.RecordRecoverableErrorForItem(errData)
        End Try
    Else
        ' SaveChangeWithChangeUnits should be called for all actions other than delete actions.
        Throw New NotImplementedException("SaveItemChange only handles deletes!")
    End If
