[Visual Basic]Property SourceURL As String

[C++]HRESULT get_SourceURL(BSTRpVal);


  • pVal
    Returns the value of the SourceURL property as a reference to a BSTR.


The SourceURL property specifies the URL of the currently bound item located in Active Directory or the Exchange store. For example, if you bound and opened an item in the Exchange store using the IDataSource.Open method, the SourceURL is a URL to that item. If there is no currently bound item, the SourceURL property returns an empty string. This does not mean that the object is not bound; the object may still be bound to a Component Object Model (COM) object.

If both the SourceURL and the SourceClass properties return an empty string, then the implementing object is not bound.
