IAudioSessionEvents::OnDisplayNameChanged method (audiopolicy.h)

The OnDisplayNameChanged method notifies the client that the display name for the session has changed.


HRESULT OnDisplayNameChanged(
  [in] LPCWSTR NewDisplayName,
  [in] LPCGUID EventContext


[in] NewDisplayName

The new display name for the session. This parameter points to a null-terminated, wide-character string containing the new display name. The string remains valid for the duration of the call.

[in] EventContext

The event context value. This is the same value that the caller passed to IAudioSessionControl::SetDisplayName in the call that changed the display name for the session. For more information, see Remarks.

Return value

If the method succeeds, it returns S_OK. If it fails, it returns an error code.


The session manager calls this method each time a call to the IAudioSessionControl::SetDisplayName method changes the display name of the session. The Sndvol program uses a session's display name to label the volume slider for the session.

The EventContext parameter provides a means for a client to distinguish between a display-name change that it initiated and one that some other client initiated. When calling the IAudioSessionControl::SetDisplayName method, a client passes in an EventContext parameter value that its implementation of the OnDisplayNameChanged method can recognize.

For a code example that implements the methods in the IAudioSessionEvents interface, see Audio Session Events.
