CkMessageSet Ruby Reference Documentation

CkMessageSet

Current Version: 9.5.0.73

Represents a collection of email message sequence numbers or UIDs on an IMAP server.

Object Creation

obj = Chilkat::CkMessageSet.new()

Properties

Count
# intVal is an integer
intVal = messageSet.get_Count();

The number of message UIDs (or sequence numbers) in this message set.

top
HasUids
# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = messageSet.get_HasUids();
messageSet.put_HasUids(boolVal);

If true then the message set contains UIDs, otherwise it contains sequence numbers.

top
LastMethodSuccess
# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = messageSet.get_LastMethodSuccess();
messageSet.put_LastMethodSuccess(boolVal);

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
Utf8
# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = messageSet.get_Utf8();
messageSet.put_Utf8(boolVal);

When set to true, all "const char *" arguments are interpreted as utf-8 strings. If set to false (the default), then "const char *" arguments are interpreted as ANSI strings. Also, when set to true, and Chilkat method returning a "const char *" is returning the utf-8 representation. If set to false, all "const char *" return values are ANSI strings.

Methods

ContainsId
# msgId is an integer
retBool = messageSet.ContainsId(msgId);

Returns true if the msgId is contained in the message set.

top
FromCompactString
# str is a string
retBool = messageSet.FromCompactString(str);

Loads the message set from a compact-string representation. Here are some examples:

Non-Compact String

Compact String

1,2,3,4,5

1:5

1,2,3,4,5,8,9,10

1:5,8:10

1,3,4,5,8,9,10

1,3:5,8:10

top
GetId
# index is an integer
retInt = messageSet.GetId(index);

Returns the message ID of the Nth message in the set. (indexing begins at 0). Returns -1 if the index is out of range.

top
InsertId
# id is an integer
messageSet.InsertId(id);

Inserts a message ID into the set. If the ID already exists, a duplicate is not inserted.

top
LoadTaskResult
# task is a CkTask
status = messageSet.LoadTaskResult(task);
Introduced in version 9.5.0.52

Loads the message set from a completed asynchronous task.

Returns true for success, false for failure.

top
RemoveId
# id is an integer
messageSet.RemoveId(id);

Removes a message ID from the set.

top
ToCommaSeparatedStr
# outStr is a CkString (output)
status = messageSet.ToCommaSeparatedStr(outStr);
retStr = messageSet.toCommaSeparatedStr();

Returns a string of comma-separated message IDs. (This is the non-compact string format.)

Returns true for success, false for failure.

top
ToCompactString
# outStr is a CkString (output)
status = messageSet.ToCompactString(outStr);
retStr = messageSet.toCompactString();

Returns the set of message IDs represented as a compact string. Here are some examples:

Non-Compact String

Compact String

1,2,3,4,5

1:5

1,2,3,4,5,8,9,10

1:5,8:10

1,3,4,5,8,9,10

1,3:5,8:10

Returns true for success, false for failure.
