This topic describes an example of a PropertyDefinition stream. The stream contains a definition of a user-defined field, TextField1. The type is Text, and the definition is in the PropDefV2 format.

The following is a data dump of the stream as it would be displayed in a binary editor.

The following is a parse of the sample data for the PropertyDefinition stream:

  • Version: Offset 0x0, 2 bytes: 0x0103 (PropDefV2).

  • FieldDefinitionCount: Offset 0x2, 4 bytes: 0x1 (1).

  • FieldDefinitions: Offset 0x6, array of 1 FieldDefinition stream.

    • Flags: Offset 0x6, 4 bytes: 0x45 (PDO_IS_CUSTOM|PDO_PRINT_SAVEAS|PDO_PRINT_SAVEAS_DEF).

    • VT: Offset 0xA, 2 bytes: 0x8 (VT_BSTR).

    • DispId: Offset 0xC, 4 bytes: 0x0 (0).

    • NmidNameLength: Offset 0x10, 2 bytes: 0xA (10).

    • NmidName: Offset 0x12, array of 10 WCHARs. Unicode string value: "TextField1".

    • NameANSI: Offset 0x26, PackedAnsiString stream.

      • Length: Offset 0x26, 1 byte: 0xA (10).

      • Characters: Offset 0x27, array of 10 CHARs. ANSI string value: "TextField1".

    • FormulaANSI: Offset 0x31, PackedAnsiString stream.

      • Length: Offset 0x31, 1 byte: 0x0 (0).

      • Characters: Offset 0x32, array of 0 CHARs. Empty ANSI string.

    • ValidationRuleANSI: Offset 0x32, PackedAnsiString stream.

      • Length: Offset 0x32, 1 byte: 0x0 (0).

      • Characters: Offset 0x33, array of 0 CHARs. Empty ANSI string.

    • ValidationTextANSI: Offset 0x33, PackedAnsiString stream.

      • Length: Offset 0x33, 1 byte: 0x0 (0).

      • Characters: Offset 0x34, array of 0 CHARs. Empty ANSI string.

    • ErrorANSI: Offset 0x34, PackedAnsiString stream.

      • Length: Offset 0x34, 1 byte: 0x0 (0).

      • Characters: Offset 0x35, array of 0 CHARs. Empty ANSI string.

    • InternalType: Offset 0x35, 4 bytes: 0x0 (iTypeString).

    • SkipBlocks: Offset 0x39, series of SkipBlock streams.

    • First SkipBlock

      • Size: Offset 0x39, 4 bytes: 0x15 (21).

      • Content: Offset 0x3D, array of 21 bytes. This is the first SkipBlock stream, so this array contains a FirstSkipBlockContent stream.

        • FieldName: Offset 0x3D, PackedUnicodeString stream.

          • Length: Offset 0x3D, 1 byte: 0xA (10).

          • Characters: Offset 0x3E, array of 10 WCHARs. Unicode string value: "TextField1".

    • Second SkipBlock

      • Size: Offset 0x52, 4 bytes: 0x0 (0). This is the terminating SkipBlock stream.
