RouteX Document Router Toolkit
Main Functions Types & Errors Query Language Demo Home


Returns the first document to route. It also returns the query information for the query routing this document. Thus it will return the action, reference, title and query itself for this document. Note that the document returned is whatever string you stored with rxStartDocument. Using the document text and the action text your application can take whatever action is necessary on the file. This might consist of copying it to a backup location, emailing it to a specific address, printing it out, etc.

The Query argument is a pointer to an rxQueryData struct as with rxAddQuery or rxFindQuery.

typedef struct rxQueryData {

   UCharT Query[1024];

   UCharT Title[1024];

   UCharT Reference[1024];

   UCharT Action[1024];


Note that RouteX generates a list of 'hit' documents afer you call rxEndRoutingBatch. It is up to you to call rxGetFirstHit and rxGetNextHit after you call rxEndRoutingBatch. If there are no more hits then *Status will contain EndOfHitList. You should check *Status for this value and not just if *Status is less than 0.


void rxGetFirstHit( RouteX Router, char *document, rxQueryData *Query, StatusCodeT *Status )


Router The RouteX object you are deleting
document A pointer to a null terminated string. You must allocate this variable.
Query A pointer to a rxQueryData struct containing the query information that found this document, including the action to be taken on it. You must allocate this variable.
Status A pointer to a value of type StatusCodeT. If an error occurs during the execution of the function a value representing the error will be stored in *Status. You should check *Status after every function call.
