IADsPropertyList::PutPropertyItem method

The IADsPropertyList::PutPropertyItem method updates the values for an item in the property list.

Syntax


HRESULT PutPropertyItem(
  [in] VARIANT VarData
);

Parameters

VarData [in]

New property values to be put in the property cache. This should contain the IDispatch pointer to the object which implements the IADsPropertyEntry that contain the modified property values.

Return value

This method supports the standard HRESULT return values, including S_OK. For more information and other return values, see ADSI Error Codes.

Remarks

The IADsPropertyEntry::put_ControlCode should be set to the desired modify / add / delete operation by using the proper ADS_PROPERTY_OPERATION_ENUM value. After PutPropertyItem has been called, you must call IADs::SetInfo to persist any changes in the directory store. The property values are not committed until the IADs::SetInfo method is called.

Examples

The following code example shows how to add a new entry to a property list using PutPropertyItem.


Dim propList As IADsPropertyList
Dim propVal As IADsPropertyValue
Dim propEntry As IADsPropertyEntry
On Error GoTo Cleanup

Set propList = GetObject("LDAP://DC=Fabrikam,DC=com")
Set propVal = New PropertyValue
 
'--- Property Value-----
propVal.CaseIgnoreString = "Fabrikam, Inc - Seattle, WA"
propVal.ADsType = ADSTYPE_CASE_IGNORE_STRING
 
'--- Property Entry ----
Set propEntry = New PropertyEntry
propEntry.Name = "adminDescription"
propEntry.Values = Array(propVal)
propEntry.ControlCode = ADS_PROPERTY_UPDATE
propEntry.ADsType = ADSTYPE_CASE_IGNORE_STRING
 
' --- Property List----
propList.PutPropertyItem (propEntry)
 
' query the IADs interface on the propList object
Dim IADsObj As IADs
Set IADsObj=propList
 
' Commit changes of the property list to the directory store.
IADsObj.SetInfo

Cleanup:
    If(Err.Number<>0) Then
        MsgBox("An error has occurred. " & Err.Number)
    End If

    Set propList = Nothing
    Set propVal = Nothing
    Set propEntry = Nothing
    Set IADsObj = Nothing
