IMbnConnectionManager interface

Provides access to IMbnConnection objects and connection notifications.


The IMbnConnectionManager interface inherits from the IUnknown interface. IMbnConnectionManager also has these types of members:


The IMbnConnectionManager interface has these methods.


Gets a specific connection.


Gets a list of all connections.



This interface can be used to access the following notification interfaces.

Notification Sink to RegisterIID
IMbnConnectionManagerEvents IID_IMbnConnectionManagerEvents
IMbnConnectionEvents IID_IMbnConnectionEvents


An application can obtain this interface by calling CoCreateInstance with a class id of CLSID_IMbnConnectionManager.

The following procedure describes how to register for notifications.

  1. Get an IConnectionPointContainer interface by calling QueryInterface on an IMbnConnectionManager object.
  2. For each notification sink to register, call FindConnectionPoint on the returned interface and pass IID corresponding to the notification sink to riid.

  3. For each connection point returned by step 2, call Advise on the returned connection point and pass a pointer to an IUnknown interface on an object that implements the matching notification interface to pUnk.

Notifications can be terminated by calling Unadvise on the connection point returned in step 2.

To view some code that registers for COM notifications, see the "Client" section of the COM Connection Points article.
