EmailBundle

Current Version: 9.5.0.75

Represents a collection of Email objects.

Object Creation

loObject = createobject("CkEmailBundle")

Properties

DebugLogFilePath
DebugLogFilePath As Character

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.

top
LastErrorHtml
LastErrorHtml As Character (read-only)

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
LastErrorText As Character (read-only)

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
LastErrorXml As Character (read-only)

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
LastMethodSuccess As Boolean
Introduced in version 9.5.0.52

Indicate whether the last method call succeeded or failed. A value of .T. indicates success, a value of .F. 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 = .T. and failure = .F..
  • 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 .T.. For example, a method that returns no value (such as a "void" in C++) will technically always succeed.

top
MessageCount
MessageCount As Numeric (read-only)

The number of emails in this bundle.

top
VerboseLogging
VerboseLogging As Boolean

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

Version
Version As Character (read-only)

Version of the component/library, such as "9.5.0.63"

Methods

AddEmail
AddEmail(email As CkEmail) As Boolean

Adds an email object to the bundle.

Returns .T. for success, .F. for failure.

top
FindByHeader
FindByHeader(headerFieldName As Character, headerFieldValue As Character) As CkEmail

Returns the first email having a header field matching the headerFieldName and headerFieldValue exactly (case sensitive). If no matching email is found, returns .F..

Returns .F. on failure

top
GetEmail
GetEmail(index As Numeric) As CkEmail

Returns the Nth Email in the bundle. The email returned is a copy of the email in the bundle. Updating the email object returned by GetEmail has no effect on the email within the bundle. To update/replace the email in the bundle, your program should call GetEmail to get a copy, make modifications, call RemoveEmailByIndex to remove the email (passing the same index used in the call to GetEmail), and then call AddEmail to insert the new/modified email into the bundle.

IMPORTANT: This method does NOT communicate with any mail server to download the email. It simply returns the Nth email object that exists within it's in-memory collection of email objects.

Returns .F. on failure

top
GetUidls
GetUidls() As CkStringArray

Returns a StringArray object containing UIDLs for all Email objects in the bundle. UIDLs are only valid for emails retrieved from POP3 servers. An email on a POP3 server has a "UIDL", an email on IMAP servers has a "UID". If the email was retrieved from an IMAP server, the UID will be accessible via the "ckx-imap-uid" header field.

Returns .F. on failure

top
GetXml
GetXml() As Character

Converts the email bundle to an XML document in memory. Returns the XML document as a string.

Returns .F. on failure

top
LoadTaskResult
LoadTaskResult(task As CkTask) As Boolean
Introduced in version 9.5.0.52

Loads the email bundle from a completed asynchronous task.

Returns .T. for success, .F. for failure.

top
LoadXml
LoadXml(filename As Character) As Boolean

Loads an email bundle from an XML file.

Returns .T. for success, .F. for failure.

top
LoadXmlString
LoadXmlString(xmlStr As Character) As Boolean

Loads an email bundle from an XML string.

Returns .T. for success, .F. for failure.

top
RemoveEmail
RemoveEmail(email As CkEmail) As Boolean

Removes an email from the bundle. This does not remove the email from the mail server.

Returns .T. for success, .F. for failure.

top
RemoveEmailByIndex
RemoveEmailByIndex(index As Numeric) As Boolean

Removes the Nth email in a bundle. (Indexing begins at 0.)

Returns .T. for success, .F. for failure.

top
SaveLastError
SaveLastError(path As Character) As Boolean

Saves the last-error information (the contents of LastErrorXml) to an XML formatted file.

Returns .T. for success, .F. for failure.

top
SaveXml
SaveXml(filename As Character) As Boolean

Converts each email to XML and persists the bundle to an XML file. The email bundle can later be re-instantiated by calling MailMan.LoadXmlFile

Returns .T. for success, .F. for failure.

top
SortByDate
SortByDate(ascending As Boolean)

Sorts emails in the bundle by date.

top
SortByRecipient
SortByRecipient(ascending As Boolean)

Sorts emails in the bundle by recipient.

top
SortBySender
SortBySender(ascending As Boolean)

Sorts emails in the bundle by sender.

top
SortBySubject
SortBySubject(ascending As Boolean)

Sorts emails in the bundle by subject.
