IADsNameTranslate::Get method

The IADsNameTranslate::Get method retrieves the name of a directory object in the specified format. The distinguished name must have been set in the appropriate format by the IADsNameTranslate::Set method.

Syntax

HRESULT Get(
  long lnFormatType,
  BSTR *pbstrADsPath
);

Parameters

lnFormatType

The format type of the output name. For more information, see ADS_NAME_TYPE_ENUM. This method does not support the ADS_NAME_TYPE_SID_OR_SID_HISTORY_NAME element in ADS_NAME_TYPE_ENUM.

pbstrADsPath

The name of the returned object.

Return Value

This method supports the standard HRESULT return values, including:

Remarks

This method lets you retrieve the name of a single directory object. To retrieve names of multiple objects use IADsNameTranslate::GetEx.

When referral chasing is on, this method will attempt to chase and resolve the path of a specified object that is not residing on the connected server.

Examples

The following C/C++ code example shows how to translate a distinguished name that is compliant with RFC 1779 to a GUID format. The computer name of the directory server is "myServer".

C++
IADsNameTranslate *pNto;
HRESULT hr;
hr = CoCreateInstance(CLSID_NameTranslate,
                      NULL,
                      CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER,
                      IID_IADsNameTranslate,
                      (void**)&pNto);
if(FAILED(hr)) { exit 1;}
 
hr = pNto->Init(ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER,
                  CComBSTR("myServer"));
if (FAILED(hr)) { exit 1;}
 
hr =pNto->Set(ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779, CComBSTR
  ("CN=jeff,CN=Users,DC=myDomain,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM,O=Internet"));
if(FAILED(hr)) {exit 1;}
 
BSTR bstr;
hr = pNto->Get(ADS_NAME_TYPE_GUID, &bstr);
printf("Translation: %S\n", bstr);
 
SysFreeString(bstr);
pNto->Release();
The following Visual Basic code example shows how to translate a distinguished name that is compliant RFC 1779 to a GUID format. The computer name of the directory server is "myServer".
VB
Dim nto As New NameTranslate
Dim result As String
 
dn = "CN=rob,CN=Users,DC=myDomain,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM,O=Internet" 
nto.Init ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER, "myServer"
nto.Set ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779, dn
result = nto.Get ADS_NAME_TYPE_GUID
MsgBox result
The following VBScript/ASP code example shows how to translate a distinguished name that is compliant with RFC 1779 to a GUID format. The machine name of the directory server is "myServer".
VB
<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<html>
<body>
<%
  Dim nto
  const ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER = 2
  const ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779 = 1
  const ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4 = 3
 
  server = "myServer"
  user   = "jeffsmith"
  dom    = "Fabrikam"
  passwd = "top secret" 
 
  Set nto = Server.CreateObject("NameTranslate")
  nto.InitEx ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER, server, user, dom, passwd
  nto.Set ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779, dn
  result = nto.Get(ADS_NAME_TYPE_GUID)
 
  Response.Write "<p>Translated name: " & result
 
%>
</body>
</html>
