Retrieves status information about the document object.


HRESULT GetDocMiscStatus(
  [out] DWORD *pdwStatus


[out] pdwStatus

A pointer to the information on supported behaviors. Possible values are taken from the DOCMISC enumeration.

Return value

This method returns S_OK on success. Other possible return values include the following.

Return code Description
The address in pdwStatus is NULL.


This method provides a way for containers to ascertain whether a document object supports multiple views, complex rectangles, opening in a pop-up window, or file read/write.

Values from this enumerator are also stored in the registry as the value of the DocObject key.

Notes to Callers

By calling this method prior to activating a document object, containers can take whatever steps are necessary to support or otherwise accommodate the specified behaviors.

Notes to Implementers

This method must be completely implemented in any document object, even if the dereferenced value of pdwStatus is zero. E_NOTIMPL is not an acceptable return value. Normally, the returned DOCMISC value should be hard-coded for performance.
