UpdateReferences Method (IEdmItem)

Adds and removes references to and from this item.


Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub UpdateReferences( _
   ByRef ppoAddReferences As EdmItemRef(), _
   ByRef ppoRemoveReferences As EdmItemRef() _
void UpdateReferences( 
   out EdmItemRef[] ppoAddReferences,
   out EdmItemRef[] ppoRemoveReferences
void UpdateReferences( 
&   [Out] array<EdmItemRef> ppoAddReferences,
&   [Out] array<EdmItemRef> ppoRemoveReferences


Array of EdmItemRef structures; one structure for each item reference to add or update
Array of EdmItemRef structures; one structure for each item reference to remove


See the IEdmItem examples.


It is more efficient to use IEdmBatchItemReferenceUpdate, if you need to update the references of several items at the same time.

Note that the references in argument ppoRemoveReferences are deleted after references in ppoAddReferences are created or updated. A reference present in both lists is, therefore, updated and then immediately deleted.

See the Programming Items topic for more information.

Return codes:

  • S_OK: The method successfully executed.
  • S_FALSE: One of the arguments is invalid.
