StorageAdapterDetach function

Called by the Windows Biometric Framework immediately before a storage adapter is removed from the processing pipeline of the biometric unit. The purpose of this function is to release adapter specific resources attached to the pipeline.

Syntax


HRESULT WINAPI StorageAdapterDetach(
  _Inout_ PWINBIO_PIPELINE Pipeline
);

Parameters

Pipeline [in, out]

Pointer to a 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 parameter cannot be NULL.

WINBIO_E_INVALID_DEVICE_STATE

The StorageContext field of the WINBIO_PIPELINE structure cannot be NULL.

 

Remarks

To prevent memory leaks, your implementation of the StorageAdapterDetach function must release the private WINBIO_STORAGE_CONTEXT structure pointed to by the StorageContext member of the pipeline along with any other resources attached to the storage context.

If the StorageContext field in the pipeline object is NULL when this function is called, the pipeline was not properly initialized and you must return WINBIO_E_INVALID_DEVICE_STATE to notify the Windows Biometric Framework of the problem.

Before returning S_OK, this function must set the StorageContext field of the WINBIO_PIPELINE structure to NULL and the StorageHandle field to INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE.

Examples

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

    // Clear the result set. Depending on your implementation, this action

    // Release the adapter context.
    _AdapterRelease( storageContext );
    storageContext = NULL;
