HRESULT Validate(

Remarks

The Validate method allows you to check that the locator is ready to be used. This method checks if the locator properties and locator dataset are present and valid.

This method preloads all locators referenced by a composite locator. Use this method to optimize performance as locators are loaded on application startup, so that the first geocoding operation will run quickly.

This method returns a value of True if the locator is valid, and returns an error if it is not.
