IPropertyStorage::DeleteMultiple method

The DeleteMultiple method deletes as many of the indicated properties as exist in this property set.

Syntax


HRESULT DeleteMultiple(
  [in] ULONG          cpspec,
  [inconst PROPSPEC rgpspec[]
);

Parameters

cpspec [in]

The numerical count of properties to be deleted. The value of this parameter can legally be set to zero, however that defeats the purpose of the method as no properties are thereby deleted, regardless of the value set in rgpspec.

rgpspec [in]

Properties to be deleted. A mixture of property identifiers and string-named properties is permitted. There may be duplicates, and there is no requirement that properties be specified in any order.

Return value

This method supports the standard return value E_UNEXPECTED, in addition to the following:

S_OK

All the specified properties that exist in the property set have been deleted.

STG_E_ACCESSDENIED

The requested access to the property storage object has been denied. No properties were deleted.

STG_E_INSUFFICIENTMEMORY

There is not enough memory to perform this operation. Some properties may not have been deleted.

STG_E_INVALIDPARAMETER

At least one of the parameters is not valid, as when one of the PROPSPEC structures contains an illegal value of a ulKind member; for example, if the ulKind member is set to a string name instead of a property set value, some properties may not be deleted.

STG_E_INVALIDPOINTER

May be returned when at least one of the pointers passed is not valid. Some properties may not have been written. More frequently, an invalid pointer will result instead in an access violation.

Remarks

IPropertyStorage::DeleteMultiple must delete as many of the indicated properties as are in the current property set. If a deletion of a stream- or storage-valued property occurs while that property is open, the deletion will succeed and place the previously returned IStream or IStorage pointer in the reverted state.
