SpObjectToken Category Property (SAPI 5.3)

Speech API 5.3
Microsoft Speech API 5.3

Object: SpObjectToken

Category Property

The Category property returns the category of the object token as an SpObjectTokenCategory object.

If the object token has not been initialized, an attempt to reference this property will generate an SPERR_UNINITIALIZED error.


Syntax

Set: (This property is read-only)
Get: SpObjectTokenCategory = SpObjectToken.Category

Parts

SpObjectToken
The owning object.
SpObjectTokenCategory
Set: (This property is read-only)
Get: An SpObjectTokenCategory object returning the category.

Example

The following Visual Basic form code demonstrates the use of the SpObjectToken's Category and Id properties and its GetDescription method. It also demonstrates the handling of uninitialized object tokens. To run this code, create a form with the following controls:

  • A list box called List1
  • A command button called Command1

Paste this code into the Declarations section of the form.

The Form_Load procedure creates a voice object and a recognizer object. The Command1_Click procedure creates several object tokens and sends them to a subroutine which displays information about them in the list box. The first token sent is a newly-created token with no Category. The subroutine code generates an error when it tries to get the Category property of this token. The other tokens passed to the subroutine are properly initialized; for each of these tokens the subroutine displays the token's description, ID, and category ID.
