Enables or disables transactions for a specific conversation or for all conversations currently established by the calling application.
- idInst [in]
The application-instance identifier obtained by a previous call to the DdeInitialize function.
- hConv [in]
A handle to the conversation to enable or disable. If this parameter is NULL, the function affects all conversations.
- wCmd [in]
The function code. This parameter can be one of the following values.
If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.
If the function fails, the return value is zero.
If the wCmd parameter is EC_QUERYWAITING, and the application transaction queue contains one or more unprocessed transactions that are not being processed, the return value is TRUE; otherwise, it is FALSE.
The DdeGetLastError function can be used to get the error code, which can be one of the following values:
An application can disable transactions for a specific conversation by returning the CBR_BLOCK return code from its Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) callback function. When you reenable the conversation by using the DdeEnableCallback function, the operating system generates the same transaction that was in process when the conversation was disabled.
Using the EC_QUERYWAITING flag does not change the enable state of the conversation and does not cause transactions to be issued within the context of the call to DdeEnableCallback.
If DdeEnableCallback is called with EC_QUERYWAITING and the function returns a nonzero, an application should try to quickly allow message processing, return from its callback, or enable callbacks. Such a result does not guarantee that subsequent callbacks will be made. Calling DdeEnableCallback with EC_QUERYWAITING lets an application with blocked callbacks determine whether there are any transactions pending on the blocked conversation. Of course, even if such a call returns zero, an application should always process messages in a timely manner.
