getOption Method

Returns the value of one of the following options:

  • SXH_OPTION_URL (Read-only.)

  • SXH_OPTION_URL_CODEPAGE

  • SXH_OPTION_ESCAPE_PERCENT_IN_URL

  • SXH_OPTION_IGNORE_SERVER_SSL_CERT_ERROR_FLAGS

  • SXH_OPTION_SELECT_CLIENT_SSL_CERT

Fore more information about these options, see Remarks.

varValue = oServerXMLHTTPRequest.getOption(option);

Parameters

option

The option whose value is to be returned.

Example

var xmlServerHttp = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP.3.0");
var optvalue = xmlServerHttp.getOption(2);
WScript.Echo(optvalue);


Output

13056
NoteNote

This example returns the current value of the SXH_OPTION_IGNORE_SERVER_SSL_CERT_ERROR_FLAGS (option 2), which by default is 13056. This value maps to the SXH_SERVER_CERT_IGNORE_ALL_SERVER_ERRORS flag, indicating that the current XMLHTTP server instance will return all certificate errors.

HRESULT getOption(SERVERXMLHTTP_OPTION option, VARIANT * value);

Parameters

option[in]

The option whose value is to be returned.

value[out, retval]

The return value of the option.

Return Values

S_OK

Value returned if successful.

The following table lists the options available for the getOption method.

Option

Description

-1

SXH_OPTION_URL

By default, returns a variant of type string that contains the URL of the resource. Read-only.

The SXH_OPTION_URL option allows the client to learn the final URL last used. For example, after a call made using the send method has completed, you can use this option to check the URL and see if any redirection occurred. The URL, however, cannot be read until the open method is next called.

0

SXH_OPTION_URL_CODEPAGE

By default, CP_UTF8 is the code page used to convert the Unicode URL string (specified in the open method) to a single-byte representation.

The SXH_OPTION_URL_CODEPAGE option allows the client to override this default with a different code page value. The client should specify an unsigned integer value for the code page.

1

SXH_OPTION_ESCAPE_PERCENT_IN_URL

By default, escaping unsafe ANSI characters in the URL (for example, " " -> "%20") does not escape the % character itself.

The SXH_OPTION_ESCAPE_PERCENT_IN_URL option allows the client to change this behavior. The client should specify a Boolean True/False value for this option.

2

SXH_OPTION_IGNORE_SERVER_SSL_CERT_ERROR_FLAGS

The SXH_OPTION_IGNORE_SERVER_SSL_CERT_ERROR_FLAGS option is a DWORD mask of various flags that can be set to change this default behavior. The default value is to ignore all problems. You must set this option before calling the send method. The flags are as follows:

SXH_SERVER_CERT_IGNORE_UNKNOWN_CA = 256

Unknown certificate authority

SXH_SERVER_CERT_IGNORE_WRONG_USAGE = 512

Malformed certificate such as a certificate with no subject name.

SXH_SERVER_CERT_IGNORE_CERT_CN_INVALID = 4096

Mismatch between the visited hostname and the certificate name being used on the server.

SXH_SERVER_CERT_IGNORE_CERT_DATE_INVALID = 8192

The date in the certificate is invalid or has expired.

SXH_SERVER_CERT_IGNORE_ALL_SERVER_ERRORS = 13056

All certificate errors.

To turn off a flag, you subtract it from the default value, which is the sum of all flags. For example, to catch an invalid date in a certificate, you turn off the SXH_SERVER_CERT_IGNORE_CERT_DATE_INVALID flag as follows:

shx.setOption(2) = (shx.getOption(2) _
 - SXH_SERVER_CERT_IGNORE_CERT_DATE_INVALID)

3

SXH_OPTION_SELECT_CLIENT_SSL_CERT

By default, the value of this option is an empty string (""), which means pick the first certificate in the local store to send if the server requests a client certificate.

The SXH_OPTION_SELECT_CLIENT_SSL_CERT option is a string that lets you select which client certificate from the local store should be sent. You must set this option before calling the send method. The following example sets the client certificate option to request the client certificate named "MSXML": certName = shx.getOption(3) = "MSXML"

Implemented in: MSXML 3.0 and MSXML 6.0
