ICertServerPolicy::EnumerateExtensions method (certif.h)

The EnumerateExtensions method retrieves the object identifier (OID) of the current extension and moves the internal enumeration pointer to the next extension.

Syntax

HRESULT EnumerateExtensions(
  BSTR *pstrExtensionName
);

Parameters

pstrExtensionName

A pointer to a BSTR that contains the OID of the current extension.

Return value

C++

If the method succeeds, the method returns S_OK, and the pstrExtensionName parameter contains the OID of the current extension. A value of S_FALSE is returned if the last extension was already enumerated.

To use this method, create a variable of BSTR type, set the variable equal to NULL, and pass the address of this variable as pstrExtensionName.

When you have finished using the BSTR, free it by calling the SysFreeString function.

If the method fails, it returns an HRESULT value that indicates the error. For a list of common error codes, see Common HRESULT Values.

VB

Returns a string that contains the OID of the extension, or an empty string if the last extension was already enumerated.

Remarks

This method enumerates certificate extensions recorded in the database, even those that are disabled and do not appear in the certificate. To determine whether an extension is disabled, use GetCertificateExtensionFlags to test the extension's EXTENSION_DISABLE_FLAG bit.

When done enumerating, call the EnumerateExtensionsClose method to free resources used by the enumeration calls.

Examples

#include <windows.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <Certif.h>

BSTR     bstrExt = NULL;
VARIANT  varExt;
LONG     ExtFlags;
HRESULT  hr;

VariantInit(&varExt);

// Enumerate the extensions.
while (S_OK ==
      (hr = pCertServerPol->EnumerateExtensions(&bstrExt)))
{
  // Retrieve the extension data.
  if (FAILED(pCertServerPol->GetCertificateExtension(
                             bstrExt,
                             PROPTYPE_BINARY,
                             &varExt)))
      printf("Failed GetCertificateExtension\n");
  else
  {
     // Retrieve the extension flags.
    if (FAILED(pCertServerPol->GetCertificateExtensionFlags(
                               &ExtFlags)))
        printf("Failed GetCertificateExtensionFlags\n");
    else
        // This sample will display the extension OID string,
        // the extension flags (in hex) and
        // the length of the BSTR binary ASN-encode extension.
        printf("Extension: %ws\tFlags:%x\tLength:%u\n",
               bstrExt,
               ExtFlags,
               SysStringByteLen(varExt.bstrVal));
  }
}
// Determine if hr was S_FALSE, meaning the enumeration 
// was completed, or some other error.
if (S_FALSE != hr)
    printf("Failed EnumerateExtensions - %x\n", hr);
// Free BSTR resource.
if (NULL != bstrExt)
    SysFreeString(bstrExt);
// Free VARIANT resource.
    VariantClear(&varExt);
