GetRootItem Method

Summary
Gets the equivalent string for the passed property ID.
Syntax
C#
C++
public object GetRootItem( 
   object item 
) 
vb[VB Syntax] 
  
Public Function GetRootItem( _ 
   ByVal _item_ As Object _ 
) As Object 
public: 
Object^ GetRootItem(  
   Object^ item 
)  

Parameters

item
Handle to the item which represents the item for which you wish to retrieve its root item. You can retrieve this parameter by either calling the GetRootItem method to get the device's root item itself or by enumerating the child items of the device through a call to EnumChildItems method.

Return Value

The WIA root item handle.

Remarks

Gets the root item for the item passed through the item parameter. If item parameters is null then the retrieved item will be the devices root item (which represents the device itself). This is the first function you need to call to get a handle to the devices root item. Then pass that handle to the EnumChildItems method to enumerate all of the devices child items. Then call this function again for any child item of the enumerated items to retrieve its root item if needed.
