NAME [Toc] [Back]
DtSearchMessages - Access and manipulate messages on the DtSearch
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
const char *msg,
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
The DtSearch online search engine may assemble detailed user messages
to explain various errors and failures. These messages are designed to
provide a user with enough information to correct the error. Often
more than one message is assembled onto the MessageList as the result
of a single API call. The calling code may also append messages to the
MessageList prior to display to the user. All messages remain on the
MessageList and new messages are appended to the preexisting list
until the list is specifically freed by the calling code.
DtSearchHasMessages returns zero if the MessageList is empty, and
returns nonzero if there are any information or error messages
currently on the MessageList.
DtSearchAddMessage appends a message to the end of the MessageList. A
message is defined as a zero-terminated C string.
DtSearchGetMessages returns a static text buffer containing all
current messages on the MessageList. The messages are returned as a
single flat, zero-terminated C string, with two ASCII linefeed
characters between messages (giving the appearance of a blank line
between messages). It is expected that the calling code will display
the text in a message dialog box or its equivalent. The returned
buffer address is valid until the next call. If the MessageList is
currently empty, this function returns a pointer to an empty string.
DtSearchFreeMessages clears all messages on the MessageList. It is
usually called after the user has dismissed a dialog box displaying
the current messages.
