IADs::Put method

The IADs::Put method sets the values of an attribute in the ADSI attribute cache.

Syntax

HRESULT Put(
  BSTR    bstrName,
  VARIANT vProp
);

Parameters

bstrName

Contains a BSTR that specifies the property name.

vProp

Contains a VARIANT that specifies the new values of the property.

Return Value

This method supports the standard return values, as well as the following.

For more information, and other return values, see ADSI Error Codes.

Remarks

The assignment of the new property values, performed by Put takes place in the property cache only. To propagate the changes to the directory store, call IADs::SetInfo on the object after calling Put.

To manipulate the property values beyond a simple assignment, use Put to append or remove a value from an existing array of attribute values.

Examples

The following code example shows how to use the IADs::Put method.

Dim x As IADs
On Error GoTo Cleanup

Set x = GetObject("LDAP://CN=JeffSmith,CN=Users,DC=Fabrikam, DC=Com") 
x.Put "givenName", "Jeff"
x.Put "sn", "Smith"
x.SetInfo    ' Commit to the directory.

Cleanup:
   If(Err.Number<>0) Then
      MsgBox("An error has occurred. " & Err.Number)
   End If
   Set x = Nothing

The following code example shows how to use the IADs::Put method.

HRESULT hr;
IADs *pADs = NULL;
LPWSTR pszADsPath = L"LDAP://CN=JeffSmith,CN=Users,DC=Fabrikam,DC=com";
 
CoInitialize(NULL);
 
//////////////////////////////////
// Modifying attributes using IADs
//////////////////////////////////
hr = ADsGetObject(pszADsPath, IID_IADs, (void**) &pADs);
 
if(SUCCEEDED(hr))
{ 
    VARIANT var;
    VariantInit(&var);
     
    // Set the first name.
    V_BSTR(&var) = SysAllocString(L"Jeff");
    V_VT(&var) = VT_BSTR;
    hr = pADs->Put(CComBSTR("givenName"), var);
     
    // Set the last name.
    VariantClear(&var);
    V_BSTR(&var) = SysAllocString(L"Smith");
    V_VT(&var) = VT_BSTR;
    hr = pADs->Put(CComBSTR("sn"), var); 
    VariantClear(&var);

    // Other Telephones.
    LPWSTR pszPhones[] = { L"425-707-9790", L"425-707-9791" };
    DWORD dwNumber = sizeof(pszPhones)/sizeof(LPWSTR);
    hr = ADsBuildVarArrayStr(pszPhones, dwNumber, &var);
    hr = pADs->Put(CComBSTR("otherTelephone"), var); 
    VariantClear(&var);
     
    // Commit the change to the directory.
    hr = pADs->SetInfo();
    pADs->Release();
}

CoUninitialize();
