ICertEncodeBitString::Encode method (certenc.h)

The Encode method performs Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) encoding on a given bit string.

Syntax

HRESULT Encode(
  [in]  LONG BitCount,
  [in]  BSTR strBitString,
  [out] BSTR *pstrBinary
);

Parameters

[in] BitCount

The number of bits in strBitString.

[in] strBitString

The bit string to encode.

[out] pstrBinary

A pointer to a BSTR that will contain the encoded bit string. When you have finished using this BSTR, call the SysFreeString function to free pbstrBinary.

Return value

C++

If the method succeeds, the method returns S_OK.

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

The return value is the ASN.1-encoded bit string.
