Win32 COM/C++ Syntax

HRESULT CreateAddress
   IUccPresenceContactCardAddress** ppAddress
In a Win32 application, the return value of a method or property is always an HRESULT value indicating the status of the call to the interface member. Any result of the operation is returned as a parameter marked with the [out, retval] attribute. In contrast, in a .NET application the HRESULT value indicating an error condition is returned as a COM exception and the [out, retval] parameter becomes the return value. For the UCC API-defined HRESULT values, see Trace and Handle Errors in Unified Communications Client API.

The following example returns a new instance of UccPresenceContactCardAddress to calling code. The example method accepts a parameter of type UCC_CONTACT_CARD_ADDRESS_TYPE.

/// <summary>
/// Creates a new instance of UccPresenceContactCardAddress. 
/// </summary>
/// <param name="pAddressType">UCC_CONTACT_CARD_ADDRESS_TYPE enumeration</param>
/// <returns>UccPresenceContactCardAddress of specified type</returns>
public UccPresenceContactCardAddress CreateNewAddressObject(
   UccPresenceContactCardAddress returnValue = null;
      returnValue = this._ContactCard.CreateAddress(pAddressType);
   catch (COMException)
   return returnValue;
