dat_provider_fini(3DAT)

Name

dat_provider_fini - disassociate the Provider from a given IA name

Synopsis

cc [ flag… ] file–ldat [ library… ] 
#include <dat/udat.h>

void
    dat_provider_fini (
    IN    const DAT_PROVIDER_INFO    *provider_info
    )

Parameters

provider_info

The information that was provided when dat_provider_init was called.

Description

A destructor the Registry calls on a Provider before it disassociates the Provider from a given IA name.

The Provider can use this method to undo any initialization it performed when dat_provider_init(3DAT) was called for the same IA name. The Provider's implementation of this method should call dat_registry_remove_provider(3DAT) to unregister its IA Name. If it does not, the Registry might remove the entry itself.

This method can be called for a given IA name at any time after all open instances of that IA are closed, and is certainly called before the Registry unloads the Provider library. However, it is not called more than once without an intervening call to dat_provider_init() for that IA name.

Return Values

No values are returned.
