IADsNameTranslate::SetEx method

The IADsNameTranslate::SetEx method establishes an array of objects for name translation. The specified objects must exist in the connected directory server. To set the name and format of a single directory object, use the IADsNameTranslate::Set method.

Syntax

HRESULT SetEx(
  long    lnFormatType,
  VARIANT pvar
);

Parameters

lnFormatType

The format type of the input names. For more information, see ADS_NAME_TYPE_ENUM.

pvar

A variant array of strings that hold object names.

Return Value

This method supports the standard HRESULT return values, including:

Remarks

You cannot use the IADsNameTranslate::SetEx method to set name translation for objects residing on other servers, even when the referral chasing option is enabled. For more information about referral chasing, see IADsNameTranslate Property Methods.

You can use IADsNameTranslate::SetEx to set names for multiple objects. All the names, however, must be of the same format.

Examples

The following C/C++ code example uses the IADsNameTranslate::SetEx method to set up an array of objects whose names are to be translated from the RFC 1779 format to the Windows user name format.

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 Visual Basic code example uses the IADsNameTranslate::SetEx method to set up an array of objects whose names are to be translated from the RFC 1779 format to the s user name format.

Dim nto As New NameTranslate
dso(0)="CN=jeffSmith, CN=users, DC=Fabrikam dc=COM"
dso(1)="CN=brendaDiaz, CN=users, DC=Fabrikam dc=COM"
nto.Init  ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER, "myServer"
nto.SetEx ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779, dso
trans = nto.GetEx(ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4)   
Msgbox "Translations: " & trans(0) & "," & trans(1)

The following VBScript/ASP code example uses the IADsNameTranslate::SetEx method to set up an array of objects whose names are to be translated from the RFC 1779 format to the s user name format.

<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<html>
<body>
<%
  Dim nto
  const ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER = 2  ' VBScript cannot read 
  const ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779 = 1        ' enumeration definition
  const ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4 = 3
 
  dn(0) = "CN=jeffSmith,CN=Users,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM" 
  dn(1) = "CN=brendaDiaz,CN=Users,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM" 
 
  Set nto = Server.CreateObject("NameTranslate")
  nto.Init ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER, "myServer"
  nto.SetEx ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779, dn
  result = nto.GetEx(ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4)
 
  Response.Write "<p>Name in the translated format: " & result(0) & _
       ", & result(1)
 
%>
</body>
</html>
