ldap_next_entry function (winldap.h)

The ldap_next_entry function retrieves an entry from a search result chain.


WINLDAPAPI LDAPMessage *LDAPAPI ldap_next_entry(
  [in] LDAP        *ld,
  [in] LDAPMessage *entry


[in] ld

The session handle.

[in] entry

The entry returned by a previous call to ldap_first_entry or ldap_next_entry.

Return value

If the search returned valid results, this function returns a pointer to the next result entry in the results set. If no further entries or references exist in the result set, it returns NULL. This is the only error return; the session error parameter in the LDAP data structure is cleared to 0 in either case.


Use ldap_next_entry in conjunction with ldap_first_entry to step through and retrieve the list of entries from a search result chain.

You are not required to explicitly free the returned entry because it is freed when the message itself is freed.
