Property Value

A value of the BSTR* (string, for a .NET application) type. This returns the string value of the property.

An application should verify that a given property is set before accessing the property. An application must enclose a reference to a property StringValue within a try/catch block to catch the COM exception raised when an un-initialized value property is accessed on the IUccProperty instance.

Win32 COM/C++ Syntax

HRESULT get_StringValue
   BSTR* pbstrPropertyValue
HRESULT put_StringValue
   BSTR pbstrPropertyValue
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 Unified Communications Client API-defined HRESULT values, see Trace and Handle Errors in Unified Communications Client API.

The following example returns a boolean value of true when the string property value of interest is initialized and a false value otherwise. The actual string value of the property is returned in an out parameter of the example method.

public Boolean GetPropertyStringValue(
   IUccPropertyCollection pPropertyCollection,
   int propertyId,
   out string propertyValue)
   //initialize return value
   Boolean returnValue = false;

   //initialize out value of interested property string value
   propertyValue = string.Empty;

   //verify interested property was set
   if (pPropertyCollection.IsPropertySet(propertyId))
      //get interested property and fill returnValue with string value of property
      IUccProperty property = pPropertyCollection.get_Property(propertyId);
         returnValue = true;
         propertyValue = property.StringValue;
      { }
   return returnValue;
