OutlineCodes Object (Project)

Contains a collection of OutlineCode objects.

An outline code is a type of local custom field that has a hierarchical text lookup table. Enterprise custom fields of type Text that have hierarchical lookup tables act as outline codes. Use the OutlineCodes property to return an OutlineCodes collection. Use the Add method to add a local outline code to the OutlineCodes collection. To add an enterprise custom field, you must use Project Web App or the Project Server Interface (PSI).

Using the OutlineCodes Collection Object

The following example adds a custom outline code to store the location of resources and configures the outline code such that only values specified in the lookup table can be associated with a resource.

Note Note

The OnlyLookUpTableCodes property can be set only after the lookup table contains entries. If you try to set OnlyLookUpTableCodes before creating lookup table entries, the result is run-time error 7, "Out of memory."
