Successful Return Values

Last modified: March 09, 2015

Applies to: SharePoint Foundation 2010

A successful return value for FrontPage Server Extensions from Microsoft contains either or both of the following:

  • A message that the method completed successfully.

  • The name of the method and a bulleted list of meta-keys and values for the page, set of pages, or Web site upon which the method acted.

The return value is always in the form of an HTML formatted page, such as the following example:

<html><head><title>vermeer.RPC.packet</title></head>LF
<body>LF<p>method=get document:6.0.n.nnnnLF <p>message=successfully

'D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\allnew\_borders\left.htm'.

Note Note

The periods that appear at the end of each line and in some strings are the spaces and line feeds (LF) that appear in this material in its previous format.

Each meta-key appears as a separate bulleted item, followed by another bulleted item that contains the key item. The key item provides coded information about the key, a vertical separation line, and the key value.

For example:

  • vti_webservertype

  • SR|msiis

This example provides information about the vti_webservertype meta-key. In the second bulleted item, the key item, the two-letter code to the left of the vertical line, identifies the data type and the access level of the meta-key value to the right of the vertical line.

Each two-letter code is composed of a single letter for a data type followed by a single letter that denotes an access level. The codes for data types are:

  • B  Boolean value that can be set to true or false. Note that 1 can be used as a substitute for true.

  • F  File system time.

  • I  Integer or signed integer.

  • S  String.

  • T  Time.

  • V  String vector.

The letter codes for the access levels are:

  • R  Can see this key in the user interface (UI) of Microsoft FrontPage but cannot change it.

  • X  Cannot see this key in the FrontPage UI.

  • W  Can see and change this key by using the UI in FrontPage.
