EncodedData.Format method

[CAPICOM is a 32-bit only component that is available for use in the following operating systems: Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, and Windows XP. Instead, use the AsnEncodedData Class in the System.Security.Cryptography namespace.]

The Format method returns a string representation of the encoded data.

Syntax


EncodedData.Format( _
  [ ByVal bMultiLines ] _
)

Parameters

bMultiLines [in, optional]

Boolean value that indicates whether the returned string contains multiple lines. If True, the returned string may contain multiple lines separated by vbCrLf. The default value is False.

Return value

A human-readable string that represents the encoded data. If CAPICOM does not understand the encoded data, a hexadecimal representation of the data is returned.

Remarks

The format of the returned string may change between different versions of CAPICOM. Do not rely on any particular format in your application.
