The GetDisplayName function returns the display name associated with a supplied SIP address.


string GetDisplayName(
  string address



The SIP address whose associated display name portion will be parsed and returned; for example, GetDisplayName("\"Display Name\" <sip:someone@example.com:6767>") returns the string "Display Name". (Note that the double quotes around the display name in the address must be escaped if a literal is passed directly, rather than as the output of another function, such as GetHeaderValues.)

Return Values

Returns the display name as a string. Returns null if requested data is not found.
