ClusProperties.UseDefaultValue method

[The UseDefaultValue method is available for use in the operating systems specified in the Requirements section. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions.]

Used in conjunction with ClusProperties.SaveChanges to return a property to its default value.

Syntax


ClusProperties.UseDefaultValue( _
  ByVal varIndex _
)

Parameters

varIndex

A Variant specifying a property by name or by numeric index.

Return value

This method does not return a value.

Remarks

UseDefaultValue works in conjunction with ClusProperties.SaveChanges as follows.

  • UseDefaultValue sets the value of the property in the collection to empty and flags the property as "use default."
  • When the SaveChanges method is invoked, any property in the collection flagged as "use default" is not written to the cluster database. Instead, SaveChanges method clears the property value stored in the cluster database, causing the property to revert to its the hard-coded default value.
  • If SaveChanges is successful, it automatically calls ClusProperties.Refresh, which reads the default value from the cluster database into the collection.

The hard-coded default value of a property is defined by the Cluster service or by a resource DLL. The Cluster Properties reference section documents each of the properties defined by the Cluster service, including their default values.

The ClusProperties.Refresh method clears the "use default" flag without affecting cluster database.

Examples

The following example uses UseDefaultValue to set all of an object's properties to their default values.


Option Explicit

Public Function RestoreDefaults(obj)
  Dim objProp
  Dim strOut

  For Each objProp in obj.CommonProperties
    objProp.UseDefaultValue
  Next
  objProp.CommonProperties.SaveChanges

  For Each objProp in obj.PrivateProperties
    objProp.UseDefaultValue
  Next
  objProp.PrivateProperties.SaveChanges

  For Each objProp in objProp.CommonProperties
    strOut = strOut & objProp.Name & " = " & CStr(objProp.Value) & _
             vbCrLf
  Next

  For Each objProp in objProp.CommonProperties
    strOut = strOut & objProp.Name & " = " & CStr(objProp.Value) & _
              vbCrLf
  Next

  WScript.Echo strOut

  Set objProp = Nothing

End Function
