IObjectWithSite::GetSite method (ocidl.h)

Retrieves the latest site passed using SetSite.


  [in]  REFIID riid,
  [out] void   **ppvSite


[in] riid

The IID of the interface pointer that should be returned in ppvSite.

[out] ppvSite

Address of pointer variable that receives the interface pointer requested in riid. Upon successful return, *ppvSite contains the requested interface pointer to the site last seen in SetSite. The specific interface returned depends on the riid argument. In essence, the two arguments act identically to those in QueryInterface. If the appropriate interface pointer is available, the object must call AddRef on that pointer before returning successfully. If no site is available, or the requested interface is not supported, this method must *ppvSite to NULL and return a failure code.

Return value

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

Return code Description
There is no site, in which case *ppvSite contains NULL on return.
There is a site, but it does not support the interface requested by riid.


E_NOTIMPL is not allowed. Any object implementing this interface must be able to return the last site seen in IObjectWithSite::SetSite.
