Finding Components

The Component Manager provides routines that allow your application to search for components. Your application specifies the search criteria in a component description record. (See "Data Structures for Applications" beginning on page 6-36 for information about the component description record.) Based on the values you specify in fields of the component description record, the Component Manager attempts to find components that meet the needs of your application.

You can use the CountComponents function to determine the number of components that match a component description. Use the FindNextComponent function to find an individual component that matches a description.

You can use the GetComponentListModSeed function to determine whether the list of registered components has changed.
