IADsNameTranslate::GetEx method

The IADsNameTranslate::GetEx method gets the object names in the specified format. The object names must be set by IADsNameTranslate::SetEx.

Syntax

HRESULT GetEx(
  long    lnFormatType,
  VARIANT *pvar
);

Parameters

lnFormatType

The format type used for the output names. For more information about the various types of formats you can use, 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.

pvar

A variant array of strings that hold names of the objects returned.

Return Value

This method supports the standard HRESULT return values, including:

Remarks

This method gets the names of multiple objects. However, all of the names returned use a single format.

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

Examples

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

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;}
 
LPWSTR str[1] = { L"CN=jim,CN=Users,DC=myDomain,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM",
                  L"CN=rob,CN=Users,DC=myDomain,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM"};
DWORD dwNum = sizeof(str)/sizeof(LPWSTR);
 
VARIANT varStr;
VariantInit(&varStr);
 
hr = ADsBuildVarArrayStr(str,dwNum,&varStr);
 
hr =pNto->SetEx(ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779, varStr);
if(FAILED(hr)) {exit 1;}
VariantClear(&varStr);
 
hr = pNto->GetEx(ADS_NAME_TYPE_GUID, &varStr);
if(FAILED(hr)) {exit 1;}
 
LONG lstart, lend;
SAFEARRAY *sa = V_ARRAY(&varStr);
VARIANT varItem;
VariantInit(&varItem);
printf("Names in the translated format:\n");
for (long idx = lstart; idx <= lend; idx++) 
{
    hr = SafeArrayGetElement(sa, &idx, &varItem);
    printf("   %S\n", V_BSTR(&varItem));
    VariantClear(&varItem);
}
VariantClear(&varStr);
pNto->Release();

The following code example shows how to convert multiple names from the RFC 1779 type to the GUID type. The computer name of the directory server is "myServer".

Dim nto As new NameTranslate
Dim result As Variant
Dim ns(1) As String
 
nto.Init ADS_NAME_INITTTYPE_SERVER, "myServer"
 
ns(0)="CN=rob,CN=users,DC=example,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM,O=Internet"
ns(1)="CN=jim,CN=users,DC=example,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM,O=Internet"
 
nto.SetEx ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779, ns
nto.GetEx ADS_NAME_TYPE_GUID, result
MsgBox "name(0): " & result(0) & " name(1): " & result(1)

The following VBScript/ASP code example translates two distinguished names compliant with RFC 1779 to the GUID format. The computer name of the directory server is "myServer".

<%@ 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
 
  ns(0)="CN=rob,CN=users,DC=example,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM,O=Internet"
  ns(1)="CN=jim,CN=users,DC=example,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM,O=Internet"
 
  nto.SetEx ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779, ns
  result = nto.GetEx(ADS_NAME_TYPE_GUID)
 
  Response.Write "<p>Names in the translated format: " & result(0) & _
    ", " & result(1)
 
%>
</body>
</html>
