ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_ENUM enumeration

The ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_ENUM enumeration specifies the types of initialization to perform on a NameTranslate object. It is used in the IADsNameTranslate interface.

Syntax


typedef enum  { 
  ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_DOMAIN  = 1,
  ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER  = 2,
  ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_GC      = 3
} ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_ENUM;

Constants

ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_DOMAIN

Initializes a NameTranslate object by setting the domain that the object binds to.

ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER

Initializes a NameTranslate object by setting the server that the object binds to.

ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_GC

Initializes a NameTranslate object by locating the global catalog that the object binds to.

Remarks

The IADsNameTranslate::Init method or IADsNameTranslate::InitEx method uses these options to initialize the NameTranslate object. When ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER is used, specify the machine name of a directory server. When ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_DOMAIN is set, supply the domain name within a directory forest. When ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_GC is issued, the second parameter in IADsNameTranslate::Init or IADsNameTranslate::InitEx is ignored. The Global Catalog server of the domain of the current computer is used to perform the name translate operations. The initialization fails if the host computer is not part of a domain because no global catalog will be found.

Note  Because VBScript cannot read data from a type library, VBScript applications do not recognize the symbolic constants as defined above. Instead, use the numeric constants to set the appropriate flags in your VBScript applications. To use symbolic constants as a good programming practice, write explicit declarations of such constants, as done here, in your VBScript applications.
 

Examples

The following C/C++ code example uses IADsNameTranslate::Init method to initialize a NameTranslate object through the global catalog, assuming the client running the application is within the directory forest. It then renders the distinguished name of a user object in the Windows format.


IADsNameTranslate *pNto = NULL;
HRESULT hr = S_OK;
CComBSTR sbstr;

hr = CoCreateInstance(CLSID_NameTranslate,
                      NULL,
                      CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER,
                      IID_IADsNameTranslate,
                      (void**)&pNto);
if(FAILED(hr)) { exit 1;}
 
hr = pNto->Init(ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_GC, CComBSTR(""));
if (FAILED(hr))
{ 
   goto cleanup;
}
 
hr =pNto->Set(ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779,
             CComBSTR(L"cn=jeffsmith,cn=users,dc=Fabrikam,dc=com"));
if(FAILED(hr))
{
   goto cleanup;
}
 
hr = pNto->Get(ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4, &sbstr);
printf("Name in the translated format: %S\n", sbstr);

cleanup: 
if(pNto)
{
    pNto->Release();
}

The following Visual Basic code example uses the IADsNameTranslate::Init method to initialize a NameTranslate object through the global catalog, assuming the client running the application is within the directory forest. It then renders the distinguished name of a user object in the Windows format.


Dim nto as New NameTranslate
dso="CN=jeffsmith, CN=users, DC=Fabrikam dc=COM"
 
nto.Init  ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_GC, ""
nto.Set ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779, dso
trans = nto.Get(ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4)   
MsgBox "Translated name = " & trans

The following VBScript/ASP code example uses IADsNameTranslate::Init method to initialize a NameTranslate object through the global catalog, assuming the client running the application is within the directory forest. It then renders the distinguished name of a user object in the Windows format.


<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<html>
<body>
<%
  Dim nto
  const ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_GC = 3  ' VBScript cannot read. 
  const ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779 = 1    ' Enumeration definition.
  const ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4 = 3
 
  dn = "CN=jeff smith,CN=Users,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM" 
 
  Set nto = Server.CreateObject("NameTranslate")
  nto.Init ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_GC, ""
  nto.Set ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779, dn
  result = nto.Get(ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4)
 
  Response.Write "<p>Name in the translated format: " & result
 
%>
</body>
</html>
