IPersistFile::SaveCompleted method (objidl.h)

Notifies the object that it can write to its file. It does this by notifying the object that it can revert from NoScribble mode (in which it must not write to its file), to Normal mode (in which it can). The component enters NoScribble mode when it receives an IPersistFile::Save call.


HRESULT SaveCompleted(
  [in] LPCOLESTR pszFileName


[in] pszFileName

The absolute path of the file where the object was saved previously.

Return value

This method always returns S_OK.


SaveCompleted is called when a call to IPersistFile::Save is completed, and the file that was saved is now the current working file (having been saved with Save or Save As operations). The call to Save puts the object into NoScribble mode so it cannot write to its file. When SaveCompleted is called, the object reverts to Normal mode, in which it is free to write to its file.

Notes to Callers

OLE does not call the SaveCompleted method. Typically, applications would not call it unless they are saving objects directly to files, an operation which is generally left to the end-user.
