ITextStoreAnchor::InsertEmbeddedAtSelection method (textstor.h)

The ITextStoreAnchor::InsertEmbeddedAtSelection method inserts an IDataObject object at the insertion point or selection. The client that calls this method must have a read/write lock before inserting an IDataObject into the text stream.


HRESULT InsertEmbeddedAtSelection(
  [in]  DWORD       dwFlags,
  [in]  IDataObject *pDataObject,
  [out] IAnchor     **ppaStart,
  [out] IAnchor     **ppaEnd


[in] dwFlags

Specifies whether the paStart and paEnd parameters will contain the results of the object insertion.

The TF_IAS_NOQUERY and TF_IAS_QUERYONLY flags cannot be combined.

Value Meaning
Text is inserted, and the values of the ppaStart and ppaEnd parameters can be NULL. Use this flag if the results of the text insertion are not required.
Text is not inserted, and the ppaStart and ppaEnd anchors contain the results of the text insertion. The values of these parameters depend on how the application implements text insertion into a document.

Use this flag to view the results of the text insertion without actually inserting the text, for example, to predict the results of collapsing or otherwise adjusting a selection.

[in] pDataObject

Pointer to the IDataObject object to be inserted.

[out] ppaStart

Pointer to the anchor object at the start of the object insertion.

[out] ppaEnd

Pointer to the anchor object at the end of the object insertion. For an insertion point, this parameter value will be the same as the value of the ppaStart parameter.

Return value

This method can return one of these values.

Value Description
The method was successful.
The method could not instantiate one of the anchors paStart or paEnd.
The pchText parameter is invalid.
The method could not instantiate one of the anchors paStart or paEnd.
The caller does not have a lock on the document.


Clients must use this method to insert an object into a text stream, since a TS_CHAR_EMBEDDED constant cannot be passed into ITextStoreAnchor::SetText.
