IUPnPService::AddCallback method

The AddCallback method registers an application's callback with the UPnP framework.

Syntax


HRESULT AddCallback(
  [in] IUnknown *pUnkCallback
);

Parameters

pUnkCallback [in]

Specifies the reference to the interface that contains the callback to register. The object referred to by pUnkCallback must either support the IUPnPServiceCallback interface or the IDispatch interface.

Return value

If the method succeeds, the return value is S_OK. Otherwise, the method returns one of the COM error codes defined in WinError.h.

Remarks

Do not call this method from within a callback; memory corruption occurs.

If more than one callback is registered, the UPnP framework invokes the callbacks sequentially.

The object referred to by pUnkCallback must either support the IUPnPServiceCallback interface or the IDispatch interface. The AddCallback method first queries pUnkCallback for the IUPnPServiceCallback interface. If this interface is not supported, the AddCallback method then queries pUnkCallback for the IDispatch interface. If the IDispatch interface is not supported, both checks have failed and the AddCallback method returns E_FAIL.

If only IDispatch is supported, the service object invokes the callback by calling IDispatch::Invoke with the dispatch ID specified as zero, which indicates the default method. This default IDispatch method is passed the same parameters as the IUPnPServiceCallback method, but the first parameter passed is a string that indicates the reason the callback is invoked. Valid values are VARIABLE_UPDATE and SERVICE_INSTANCE_DIED.

This method has the following arguments:

  • The reason the callback is invoked. It is invoked either because a state variable changed (VARIABLE_UPDATE) or because the service instance has become unavailable (SERVICE_INSTANCE_DIED).
  • The service object for which the callback is invoked.

If the callback is invoked for a state variable change, the method is passed two additional arguments:

  • The name of the variable that changed.
  • The new value.
