Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.dll)

Object GetProperties(
	Object SchemaNames


Type: System.Object

An array that contains the names of the properties whose values are to be returned. These properties are referenced by namespace. For more information, see Referencing Properties by Namespace.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
An Object that represents an array of values of the properties specified in the parameter SchemaNames. The number of elements in the returned array equals the number of elements in the SchemaNames array. If an error occurs for getting a specific property, the Err value will be returned in the corresponding location in the returned array.

The array returned by GetProperties can contain elements of different types, depending on the type of the property requested. The type of the array element returned by GetProperties will be the same as the type of the underlying property. Certain raw property types such as PT_OBJECT are unsupported and will raise an error. If you require conversion of the raw property type, for example, from PT_BINARY to a string, or from PT_SYSTIME to a local time, use the helper methods _PropertyAccessor.BinaryToString and _PropertyAccessor.UTCToLocalTime.
