IX509Extension::Initialize method (certenroll.h)
The Initialize method initializes an IX509Extension object by using an object identifier (OID) and a byte array that contains the Distinguished Encoding Rules (DER) encoded extension. The DER-encoded byte array is represented by a Unicode-encoded string. This method is web enabled.
HRESULT Initialize( IObjectId *pObjectId, EncodingType Encoding, BSTR strEncodedData );
Pointer to an IObjectId interface that contains the extension OID.
An EncodingType enumeration value that specifies the type of Unicode encoding applied to the input string.
A BSTR variable that contains the DER-encoded extension value.
If the function succeeds, the function returns S_OK.
If the function fails, it returns an HRESULT value that indicates the error. Possible values include, but are not limited to, those in the following table. For a list of common error codes, see Common HRESULT Values.
||The OID could not be found.|
A certificate extension consists of an OID, a Boolean value that identifies whether the extension is critical, and a byte array that contains the extension value. The extension is defined by an Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) standard and is encoded by using DER. You must specify the DER-encoded byte array as a string that is either a pure binary sequence or is Unicode encoded. You can specify the type of encoding to apply to the string by using the EncodingType enumeration.
