StorageAdapterClearContext function

Called by the Windows Biometric Framework to prepare the processing pipeline of the biometric unit for a new operation. This function should flush temporary data from the engine context and place the engine adapter into a well-defined initial state.

Syntax


HRESULT WINAPI StorageAdapterClearContext(
  _Inout_ PWINBIO_PIPELINE Pipeline
);

Parameters

Pipeline [in, out]

Pointer to the WINBIO_PIPELINE structure associated with the biometric unit performing the operation.

Return value

If the function succeeds, it returns S_OK. If the function fails, it must return one of the following HRESULT values to indicate the error.

Return codeDescription
E_POINTER

The Pipeline argument cannot be NULL.

WINBIO_E_INVALID_DEVICE_STATE

The StorageContext member of the WINBIO_PIPELINE structure pointed to by the Pipeline argument is NULL.

 

Remarks

The following storage adapter context items should be cleared:

  • Result set - a collection of records generated by the most-recent database query operation.
  • Result set cursor - an indicator of the current position within the result set. This is used to iterate through the result set and make individual records available.

Examples

The following pseudocode shows one possible implementation of this function. The example does not compile. You must adapt it to suit your purpose.
