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