GetNext Method (IEdmSelectionList5)

Obsolete. Superseded by IEdmSelectionList6::GetNext2.


Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub GetNext( _
   ByVal poPos As IEdmPos5, _
   ByRef pbsItemName As System.String, _
   ByRef plItemID As System.Integer, _
   ByRef plParentFolderID As System.Integer _
void GetNext( 
   IEdmPos5 poPos,
   out System.string pbsItemName,
   out System.int plItemID,
   out System.int plParentFolderID
void GetNext( 
&   IEdmPos5^ poPos,
&   [Out] System.String^ pbsItemName,
&   [Out] System.int plItemID,
&   [Out] System.int plParentFolderID


IEdmPos5; position of the item to get (see Remarks)
Name of the file or folder (see Remarks)
ID of the file or folder
ID of the parent folder of the file or folder


Before calling this method the first time, you must populate poPos with the interface to the position of the first item, IEdmPos5. Call IEdmSelectionList5::GetHeadPosition 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 items.

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

C++ programmers must free the string returned in pbsItemName with a call to SysFreeString.

Return codes:

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