[in] The timeout period in seconds.

Return Value

An integer value indicating whether or not the call succeeded (succeeded = !0, failed = 0).

[in] The name of the recordset to use for recordset methods.

Return Value

An integer value indicating whether or not the call succeeded (succeeded = !0, failed = 0).

SetMetaDataOnlyFlag

Defines the current session as a "metadata-only" session. A metadata-only session does not require a host connection and allows only methods and properties that interact with metadata. You must set SetMetaDataOnlyFlag to true before you use a Connect method.

Once a connect method has been called, and before the Disconnect method has been called, any attempt to change the value of the SetMetaDataOnlyFlag property generates an error with this text: "The MetaDataOnly property cannot be changed while a connection is active."

When a client connects with SetMetaDataOnlyFlag set to true, the server does not report the connection as a session, and does not allocate a new session or a session from a pool.

Use the GetMetaDataOnlyFlag property to determine the current value of the metadata-only flag.


Syntax

int SetMetaDataOnlyFlag(SessionHandle hSession, int nMetaDataOnly);

Parameters

hSession
[in] The Host Integrator session.
nMetaDataOnly
[in] An integer value specifying whether or not to set the metadata-only flag (yes = !0, no = 0).
