DsIsMangledDnA function

The DsIsMangledDn function determines if the first relative distinguished name (RDN) in a distinguished name (DN) is a mangled name of a given type.

Syntax

DSPARSE BOOL DsIsMangledDnA(
  LPCSTR        pszDn,
  DS_MANGLE_FOR eDsMangleFor
);

Parameters

pszDn

Pointer to a null-terminated string that contains the distinguished name to retrieve the relative distinguished name from. This can also be a quoted distinguished name as returned by other directory service functions.

eDsMangleFor

Contains one of the DS_MANGLE_FOR values that specifies the type of name mangling to look for.

Return value

Returns TRUE if the first relative distinguished name in pszDn is mangled in the manner specified by eDsMangleFor or FALSE otherwise.

Remarks

Note

The dsparse.h header defines DsIsMangledDn as an alias which automatically selects the ANSI or Unicode version of this function based on the definition of the UNICODE preprocessor constant. Mixing usage of the encoding-neutral alias with code that not encoding-neutral can lead to mismatches that result in compilation or runtime errors. For more information, see Conventions for Function Prototypes.
