IWiaItem2::GetExtension method

Gets the extension interfaces that might come with a Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) 2.0 device driver.

Syntax


HRESULT GetExtension(
  [in]  LONG   lFlags,
  [in]  BSTR   bstrName,
  [in]  REFIID riidExtensionInterface,
  [out] VOID   **ppOut
);

Parameters

lFlags [in]

Type: LONG

Currently unused. Should be set to zero.

bstrName [in]

Type: BSTR

Specifies the name of the extension that the calling application requires a pointer to.

SegmentationFilter

The segmentation filter extension. This is currently the only valid value for this parameter.

riidExtensionInterface [in]

Type: REFIID

Specifies the identifier of the extension interface.

ppOut [out]

Type: VOID**

Receives the address of a pointer to the extension interface.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

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

Remarks

An application invokes this method to create an extension object implementing one of the WIA 2.0 driver extension interfaces. IWiaItem2::GetExtension stores the address of the extension object's extension interface in the riidExtensionInterface parameter. The application then uses the interface pointer to call its methods.

Applications must call the IUnknown::Release method on the interface pointers they receive through the riidExtensionInterface parameter.

Examples

CreateSegmentationFilter creates an instance of the driver's segmentation filter (IWiaSegmentationFilter) by calling IWiaItem2::GetExtension on the passed-in IWiaItem2 interface.
