/images/arrow_right.png IGeneralNotificationRequest::SetPatient method
Sets the primary parameters and structured address of the patient if a patient is involved in the notification thread. This is in principle true as soon as a dependent object reference is defined. In reverse this means that a dependent object reference must be defined as soon as a patient is defined.

The address is defined via an instance of the IAddress interface and the address data must be defined prior to call the SetPatient method.

S_OK This value is returned if the function call was successful or if the return value of a boolean method signalling a true value. In this case the VARIANT_BOOL is set to VARIANT_TRUE.
S_FALSE This is the return value of a boolean method signalling a false return value. In this case the VARIANT_BOOL is set to VARIANT_FALSE.
E_name This value is returned if the function call was unsuccessful and an error exception was generated. Note that if you are using SmartPointers an exception is thrown under these conditions.
