HasRights Method (IEdmFolder5)

Obsolete. Superseded by IEdmFolder5::HasRightsEx.


Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub HasRights( _
   ByVal lRights As System.Integer, _
   ByRef plFileID As System.Integer _
void HasRights( 
   System.int lRights,
   ref System.int plFileID
void HasRights( 
&   System.int lRights,
&   System.int% plFileID


Combination of EdmRightFlags bits
ID of file to check


This method is superseded by IEdmFolder5::HasRightsEx, which provides the ability to check rights on just this folder. Programs that do not need backwards compatibility with SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM 5.2 should use the new method.

This method takes into account both the rights set explicitly on the user and those rights that are inherited from groups of which the user is a member.

Return codes:

  • S_OK: The method successfully executed.
  • E_EDM_PERMISSION_DENIED: The user lacks one or more of the specified rights.
