Other FlowController Operations

If you have the FlowController object and need its name, call the FlowController’s get_name() operation:

const char* DDSFlowController::get_name( )

Conversely, if you have the name of the FlowController and need the FlowController object, call the DomainPartipant’s lookup_flowcontroller() operation:

DDSFlowController* lookup_flowcontroller (const char *  name)

To get a FlowController’s DomainParticipant, call the FlowController’s get_participant() operation:

DDSDomainParticipant* get_participant ( )

Note: It is not safe to lookup a FlowController description while another thread is creating that FlowController
