UndoLockFile Method (IEdmFile5)

Removes the check-out of a file without saving changes to the archive.


Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub UndoLockFile( _
   ByVal lParentWnd As System.Integer, _
   Optional ByVal bGetLatestVersion As System.Boolean _
void UndoLockFile( 
   System.int lParentWnd,
   System.bool bGetLatestVersion
void UndoLockFile( 
&   System.int lParentWnd,
&   System.bool bGetLatestVersion


Parent window handle
Optional; true to replace the local copy of the file with the latest from the archive, false to not; default is true



Before calling this method, the file must be checked out by the logged-in user.

IEdmBatchUnlock is more efficient than this interface for undoing the check-outs of multiple files.

Return codes:

  • S_OK: The method successfully executed.
  • E_EDM_FILE_NOT_LOCKED_BY_YOU: The file is not checked out or is checked out by another user.
  • E_EDM_LOCKED_ON_OTHER_COMPUTER: The file is not checked out on the client machine where you ran this method.
  • E_EDM_OPERATION_REFUSED_BY_PLUGIN: One of the loaded EdmCmdType.EdmCmd_PreUndoLock hooks did not permit the operation.
  • E_EDM_PERMISSION_DENIED: Undoing the check-out of this file is not permitted. You cannot undo the check-out of a file before it has been checked in at least once.
