Return Value

Type: System::Int32

The hash code for the X.509 certificate as an integer.

If the X.509 certificate hash is an array of more than 4 bytes, any byte after the fourth byte is not seen in this integer representation.

The following example uses the GetHashCode method to return an integer representation of a certificate's hash code and displays it to the console.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Security::Cryptography::X509Certificates;
int main()
{

   // The path to the certificate.
   String^ Certificate = "Certificate.cer";

   // Load the certificate into an X509Certificate object.
   X509Certificate^ cert = X509Certificate::CreateFromCertFile( Certificate );

   // Get the value.
   int results = cert->GetHashCode();

   // Display the value to the console.
   Console::WriteLine( results );
}
