Return value


If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.


Subcommands are displayed as menu drop-down items through the use of a Split button when commands are exposed at the top of a Windows Explorer window. In that position, only the default command button is given an icon. In a normal menu, the icons for all commands are shown.

Subcommands which themselves have subcommands are not supported by Windows Explorer. When a command has its own subcommands, it must designate this status by specifying ECF_HASSUBCOMMANDS in the IExplorerCommand::GetFlags call.
