GetNextSubFolder Method (IEdmFolder5)

Gets the next subfolder in the enumeration.


Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetNextSubFolder( _
   ByVal poPosition As IEdmPos5 _
) As IEdmFolder5
IEdmFolder5 GetNextSubFolder( 
   IEdmPos5 poPosition
IEdmFolder5^ GetNextSubFolder( 
&   IEdmPos5^ poPosition


IEdmPos5; position of the subfolder to retrieve (see Remarks)

Return Value




Before calling this method the first time, you must populate poPosition with the interface to the position of the first subfolder, IEdmPos5. Call IEdmFolder5::GetFirstSubFolderPosition to obtain IEdmPos5.

After calling this method the first time, poPos is automatically incremented every time it is called. Call this method repeatedly to obtain the rest of the subfolders.

Be sure to call IEdmPos5::IsNull before you call this method to ensure you have not reached the end of the enumeration.

C++ programmers not using smart-pointer wrapper functions must release the returned interface.

Return codes:

  • S_OK: The method successfully executed.
  • E_EDM_END_OF_LIST: You have gone past the end of the list.
