Properties

CommonName
void get_CommonName(CkString &str);
const wchar_t *commonName(void);
void put_CommonName(const wchar_t *str);
Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The common name of the certificate to be generated. For SSL/TLS certificates, this would be the domain name. For email certificates this would be the email address.

It is the value for "CN" in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "2.5.4.3")

This property is required for a CSR.

top
Company
void get_Company(CkString &str);
const wchar_t *company(void);
void put_Company(const wchar_t *str);
Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The company or organization name for the certificate to be generated.

It is the value for "O" in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "2.5.4.10")

This property is optional. It may left empty.

top
CompanyDivision
void get_CompanyDivision(CkString &str);
const wchar_t *companyDivision(void);
void put_CompanyDivision(const wchar_t *str);
Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The company division or organizational unit name for the certificate to be generated.

It is the value for "OU" in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "2.5.4.11")

This property is optional. It may left empty.

top
Country
void get_Country(CkString &str);
const wchar_t *country(void);
void put_Country(const wchar_t *str);
Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The two-letter uppercase country abbreviation, such as "US", for the certificate to be generated.

It is the value for "C" in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "2.5.4.6")

This property is optional. It may left empty.

top
DebugLogFilePath
void get_DebugLogFilePath(CkString &str);
const wchar_t *debugLogFilePath(void);
void put_DebugLogFilePath(const wchar_t *str);

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
EmailAddress
void get_EmailAddress(CkString &str);
const wchar_t *emailAddress(void);
void put_EmailAddress(const wchar_t *str);
Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The email address for the certificate to be generated.

It is the value for "E" in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "1.2.840.113549.1.9.1")

This property is optional. It may left empty.

top
LastErrorHtml
void get_LastErrorHtml(CkString &str);
const wchar_t *lastErrorHtml(void);

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
void get_LastErrorText(CkString &str);
const wchar_t *lastErrorText(void);

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
void get_LastErrorXml(CkString &str);
const wchar_t *lastErrorXml(void);

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
bool get_LastMethodSuccess(void);
void put_LastMethodSuccess(bool newVal);
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
Locality
void get_Locality(CkString &str);
const wchar_t *locality(void);
void put_Locality(const wchar_t *str);
Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The locality (city or town) name for the certificate to be generated.

It is the value for "L" in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "2.5.4.7")

This property is optional. It may left empty.

top
State
void get_State(CkString &str);
const wchar_t *state(void);
void put_State(const wchar_t *str);
Introduced in version 9.5.0.65

The state or province for the certificate to be generated.

It is the value for "S" (or "ST") in the certificate's Subject's distinguished name (DN). (This is the value for OID "2.5.4.8")

This property is optional. It may left empty.

top
VerboseLogging
bool get_VerboseLogging(void);
void put_VerboseLogging(bool newVal);

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.

top
Version
void get_Version(CkString &str);
const wchar_t *version(void);

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