This method wraps SetPropServer, providing a convenient entry point for callers who are annotating Hwnd-based objects.

HRESULT SetHwndPropServer (
  HWND hwnd,
  DWORD idObject,
  DWORD idChild,
  const MSAAPROPID* paProps,
  int cProps,
  IAccPropServer* pServer,
  AnnoScope annoScope


hwnd, idObject, idChild
[in] Identifies the accessible element that is to be annotated. This replaces the identity string.
paProps, cProps
[in] Specifies an array of properties that is to be handled by the specified callback object.
[in] Specifies the callback object, which will be invoked when a client requests one of the overridden properties.
[in] May be ANNO_THIS, indicating that the annotation affects the indicated accessible element only; or ANNO_CONTAINER, indicating that it applies to the element and its immediate element children.

Return Values

If successful, returns S_OK.

Returns E_INVALIDARG if any of the properties in the paProps array are not supported properties, if the identity string is not valid, or if annoScope is not one of ANNO_THIS or ANNO_CONTAINER.

May return other error codes under exceptional error conditions such as low memory.


By using this method, the caller does not have to obtain an identity string; it can specify the hwnd, idObject, and idChild parameters directly.
