Properties

DebugLogFilePath
Function ComDebugLogFilePath Returns String
Procedure Set ComDebugLogFilePath String value

If set to a file path, causes each Chilkat method or property call to automatically append it's LastErrorText to the specified log file. The information is appended such that if a hang or crash occurs, it is possible to see the context in which the problem occurred, as well as a history of all Chilkat calls up to the point of the problem. The VerboseLogging property can be set to provide more detailed information.

This property is typically used for debugging the rare cases where a Chilkat method call hangs or generates an exception that halts program execution (i.e. crashes). A hang or crash should generally never happen. The typical causes of a hang are:

  1. a timeout related property was set to 0 to explicitly indicate that an infinite timeout is desired,
  2. the hang is actually a hang within an event callback (i.e. it is a hang within the application code), or
  3. there is an internal problem (bug) in the Chilkat code that causes the hang.

LastBinaryResult
Function ComLastBinaryResult Returns Variant
Introduced in version 9.5.0.52

The binary data returned by the last (binary data returning) method called. Only available if Chilkat.Global.KeepBinaryResult is set to True. This provides a means for obtaining large varbinary results in the SQL Server environment (where limitations exist in getting large amounts of data returned by method calls, but where temp tables can be used for binary properties).

top
LastErrorHtml
Function ComLastErrorHtml Returns String

Provides information in HTML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

top
LastErrorText
Function ComLastErrorText Returns String

Provides information in plain-text format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

top
LastErrorXml
Function ComLastErrorXml Returns String

Provides information in XML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

top
LastMethodSuccess
Function ComLastMethodSuccess Returns Boolean
Procedure Set ComLastMethodSuccess Boolean value
Introduced in version 9.5.0.52

Indicate whether the last method call succeeded or failed. A value of True indicates success, a value of False indicates failure. This property is automatically set for method calls. It is not modified by property accesses. The property is automatically set to indicate success for the following types of method calls:

  • Any method that returns a string.
  • Any method returning a Chilkat object, binary bytes, or a date/time.
  • Any method returning a standard boolean status value where success = True and failure = False.
  • Any method returning an integer where failure is defined by a return value less than zero.

Note: Methods that do not fit the above requirements will always set this property equal to True. For example, a method that returns no value (such as a "void" in C++) will technically always succeed.

top
LastStringResult
Function ComLastStringResult Returns String
Introduced in version 9.5.0.52

The string return value of the last (string returning) method called. Only available if Chilkat.Global.KeepStringResult is set to True. This provides a means for obtaining large string results in the SQL Server environment (where limitations exist in getting long strings returned by method calls, but where temp tables can be used for string properties).

top
LastStringResultLen
Function ComLastStringResultLen Returns Integer
Introduced in version 9.5.0.53

The length, in characters, of the string contained in the LastStringResult property.

top
VerboseLogging
Function ComVerboseLogging Returns Boolean
Procedure Set ComVerboseLogging Boolean value

If set to True, then the contents of LastErrorText (or LastErrorXml, or LastErrorHtml) may contain more verbose information. The default value is False. Verbose logging should only be used for debugging. The potentially large quantity of logged information may adversely affect peformance.

Version
Function ComVersion Returns String

Methods

BeginStream
Procedure ComBeginStream

Provides a way to calculate a CRC by streaming the data a chunk at a time. An application would start by calling BeginStream. Then it would add data by calling MoreData for each additional chunk. After the last chunk has been processed, the EndStream method is called to return the CRC.

top
CalculateCrc
Function ComCalculateCrc Variant data

Calculates a 32-bit CRC for in-memory byte data. This is the 32-bit CRC that would be found in a Zip file header if a file containing the data was added to a zip archive. Returns the CRC32 of the data.

top
CrcBd
Function ComCrcBd cComChilkatBinData bd
Introduced in version 9.5.0.75

Calculates a CRC32 for the bytes contained in bd.

top
CrcSb
Function ComCrcSb cComChilkatStringBuilder sb String charset
Introduced in version 9.5.0.75

Calculates a CRC32 for the string contained in sb. The charset is the byte representation to be used for the sb when calculating the CRC32. It can be utf-8, utf-16, windows-1252, iso-8859-1, or any of the character encodings (charsets) listed at the link below.

top
CrcString
Function ComCrcString String str String charset
Introduced in version 9.5.0.75

Calculates a CRC32 for a string. The charset is the byte representation to be used for the str when calculating the CRC32. It can be utf-8, utf-16, windows-1252, iso-8859-1, or any of the character encodings (charsets) listed at the link below.

top
EndStream
Function ComEndStream

Finalizes and returns the Zip CRC value calculated by calling BeginStream followed by multiple calls to MoreData.

top
FileCrc
Function ComFileCrc String path

Calculates the CRC32 of a file. The data contained in the file is streamed for the calculation to keep the memory footprint small and constant. Returns the CRC32 of the file.

top
FileCrcAsync (1)
Function ComFileCrcAsync String path Returns cComChilkatTask

Creates an asynchronous task to call the FileCrc method with the arguments provided. (Async methods are available starting in Chilkat v9.5.0.52.)

Returns null on failure

top
MoreData
Procedure ComMoreData Variant data

Adds additional data to the CRC currently being calculated. (See BeginStream for more information.)

top
ToHex
Function ComToHex Integer crc Returns String

Converts a 32-bit integer to a hex string.

Returns null on failure
