IX509CertificateRequest::get_Silent method (certenroll.h)

The Silent property specifies or retrieves a Boolean value that indicates whether any of the key-related modal dialogs are displayed during the certificate enrollment process.

This property is read/write.

Syntax

HRESULT get_Silent(
  VARIANT_BOOL *pValue
);

Parameters

pValue

Return value

None

Remarks

This property value is used by key-related Certificate Enrollment Control modal dialogs that:

  • Direct a user to insert a smart card
  • Request a smart card pin number
  • Request the protection level for a new key
  • Request a user password before accessing a key

You can set this property before calling any initialization method or the Encode method. For a PKCS #10 request, the property value is retrieved from and specified on the associated IX509PrivateKey object if the key exists. For a PKCS #7 or CMC request the property value is updated on the inner request and all signing certificates.

If the certificate request contains nested requests and you set the Silent property on the top level request, it is automatically propagated to all of the inner requests. You can, however, set the property manually on each of the inner objects.
