IWMDMStorage3::SetEnumPreference method (mswmdm.h)

The SetEnumPreference method sets the preferred view mode for the storage.

Syntax

HRESULT SetEnumPreference(
  [in, out] WMDM_STORAGE_ENUM_MODE *pMode,
  [in]      DWORD                  nViews,
  [in]      WMDMMetadataView       *pViews
);

Parameters

[in, out] pMode

Desired mode of the storage enumerator. For more details on the mode, see WMDM_STORAGE_ENUM_MODE. If the value of pMode is set to ENUM_MODE_USE_DEVICE_PREF, then upon return it is set to ENUM_MODE_RAW or ENUM_MODE_METADATA_VIEWS, based on the device preference.

[in] nViews

Number of view definitions provided.

This parameter is ignored if the value of pMode is ENUM_MODE_RAW or if the value of pMode is ENUM_MODE_USE_DEVICE_PREF and the device does not prefer metadata views.

If the value of pMode is ENUM_MODE_METADATA_VIEWS or if the value of pMode is ENUM_MODE_USE_DEVICE_PREF and the device prefers metadata views, this parameter can still be 0. In this case, Windows Media Device Manager uses its default metadata views.

If the value of nViews is 0, ppViews must be NULL. If the value of nViews is not 0, ppViews must point to an array of WMDMMetadataView structures with nViews elements.

[in] pViews

Array of view definitions. The length of the array must be equal to nViews.

This parameter is ignored if the value of pMode is ENUM_MODE_RAW or if the value of pMode is ENUM_MODE_USE_DEVICE_PREF and the device does not prefer metadata views.

If the value of pMode is ENUM_MODE_METADATA_VIEWS or if the value of pMode is ENUM_MODE_USE_DEVICE_PREF and the device prefers metadata views, this parameter can still be NULL. In this case Windows Media Device Manager uses its default metadata views.

The value of this parameter must be NULL if the value of nViews is 0. If the value of nViews is not 0, ppViews must point to an array of WMDMMetadataView structures with nViews elements.

Return value

The method returns an HRESULT. The following table lists all possible values.

Return code Description
S_OK
The method succeeded.
E_OUTOFMEMORY
There is not enough memory to allocate the item.
E_INVALIDARG
One or more parameters are invalid.
WMDM_E_NOT_CERTIFIED
The caller does not have the rights to execute this operation.
WMDM_E_NOTSUPPORTED
The object does not support this method.
E_FAIL
An unspecified error occurred.

Remarks

Windows Media Device Manager can present metadata views of the content on the device. It walks through all the content on a top-level storage (such as internal memory or a storage card) and returns a storage enumerator that presents the content organized by the metadata of the content. The definition of a metadata view is provided through a WMDMMetadataView structure.

This behavior is controlled by the pMode parameter. If the pMode is set to ENUM_MODE_RAW, Windows Media Device Manager returns an enumerator that mirrors the hierarchy of the file system on the storage of the device. If the pMode is set to ENUM_MODE_METADATA_VIEWS, Windows Media Device Manager generates metadata views.

Devices indicate their preference by setting the device parameter UseMetadataViews at the time the device is installed. For more information about UseMetadataViews, see Device Parameters. If the application will let the device decide on the kind of storage enumerator returned, it should set pMode to ENUM_MODE_USE_DEVICE_PREF.

After this method is called, later calls to IWMDMStorage::EnumStorage will behave according to the storage enumeration preference set by this method. This method can be called again to change the behavior of subsequent IWMDMStorage::EnumStorage calls.

This method should typically be called on the top-level storage. If this method is called on any of the storages in metadata view, it will return WMDM_E_NOTSUPPORTED.
