Represents a local outline code in Project. The OutlineCode object is a member of the OutlineCodes collection.

Using the OutlineCode Object

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

Sub CreateLocationOutlineCode() 
    Dim objOutlineCode As OutlineCode 

    Set objOutlineCode = ActiveProject.OutlineCodes.Add( _
        pjCustomResourceOutlineCode1, "Location") 

    objOutlineCode.OnlyLookUpTableCodes = True 

    DefineLocationCodeMask objOutlineCode.CodeMask 
    EditLocationLookupTable objOutlineCode.LookupTable 
End Sub 


Sub DefineLocationCodeMask(objCodeMask As CodeMask) 
    objCodeMask.Add _
        Sequence:=pjCustomOutlineCodeUppercaseLetters, _
        Length:=2, Separator:="." 

    objCodeMask.Add _ 
        Sequence:=pjCustomOutlineCodeUppercaseLetters, _
        Separator:="." 

    objCodeMask.Add _
        Sequence:=pjCustomOutlineCodeUppercaseLetters, _
        Length:=3, Separator:="." 
End Sub 


Sub EditLocationLookupTable(objLookupTable As LookupTable) 
    Dim objStateEntry As LookupTableEntry 
    Dim objCountyEntry As LookupTableEntry 
    Dim objCityEntry As LookupTableEntry 

    Set objStateEntry = objLookupTable.AddChild("WA") 
    objStateEntry.Description = "Washington" 

    Set objCountyEntry = objLookupTable.AddChild("KING", _
        objStateEntry.UniqueID) 
    objCountyEntry.Description = "King County" 

    Set objCityEntry = objLookupTable.AddChild("SEA", _
        objCountyEntry.UniqueID) 
    objCityEntry.Description = "Seattle" 

    Set objCityEntry = objLookupTable.AddChild("RED", _
        objCountyEntry.UniqueID) 
    objCityEntry.Description = "Redmond" 

    Set objCityEntry = objLookupTable.AddChild("KIR", _
        objCountyEntry.UniqueID) 
    objCityEntry.Description = "Kirkland" 
End Sub

Remarks

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).
