virtual L_INT LWia::GetPropertyGUID(pItem, pszID, uID, pGuidValue)

L_VOID * pItem;

pointer to IWiaItem or IWiaItem2 interface

L_TCHAR * pszID;

pointer to string array that represents the equivalent property ID string


property ID

GUID * pGuidValue;

pointer to a GUID structure to be updated

Retrieves the GUID structure for any WIA property of type VT_CLSID (like WIA_IPA_FORMAT).

Parameter Description
pItem Valid pointer to a type IWiaItem or IWiaItem2 object (IWiaItem if using WIA Version 1.0; IWiaItem2 if using WIA Version 2.0), which represents the item having the property.
  You can retrieve this parameter by either calling the LWia::GetRootItem function to get a pointer to the device's root item or by enumerating the child items of the device through a call to LWia::EnumChildItems.
pszID This string pointer should contain the equivalent property ID string for the WIA property ID (see example below):
  Property ID Property ID Equivalent String
  If this parameter is NULL then the WIA toolkit will use the ID passed through the uID parameter, otherwise the pszID parameter will be used whether or not you passed valid property ID through the uID parameter.
uID The property ID for which you are obtaining the GUID structure.
  This parameter is required only if the pszID parameter is NULL, otherwise you can pass 0 for this parameter.
pGuidValue Pointer to a variable of type GUID to be updated with the retrieved property GUID value.
