IFileDialogEvents::OnTypeChange method

Called when the dialog is opened to notify the application of the initial chosen filetype.

Syntax


HRESULT OnTypeChange(
  [in] IFileDialog *pfd
);

Parameters

pfd [in]

Type: IFileDialog*

A pointer to the interface that represents the dialog.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Remarks

This method is called when the dialog is opened to notify the application of the initially chosen filetype. If the application has code in IFileDialogEvents that responds to type changes, it can respond to the type. For example, it could hide certain controls. The application controls the initial file type and could do its own checks, so this method is provided as a convenience.
