Syntax

PropertyObject.GetValBinary ( lookupString, options)

Return Value

Byte Array

Returns an array of bytes that contains the binary data the string property stores.

Purpose

Returns the binary data stored in the string value of the property the lookupString parameter specifies. The PropertyObject.SetValBinary method must have set the string value.

Remarks

This method unencodes and decompresses the binary data the string stores. You can use this method to retrieve arbitrary binary data from TestStand string variables or properties.

Parameters

lookupString As String

[In] Pass an empty string to denote the PropertyObject to which the method applies, or pass the name of a subproperty within the PropertyObject. You can also pass lookup strings to this parameter.

options As Long

[In] Pass 0 to specify the default behavior, or pass one or more PropertyOptions constants. Use the bitwise-OR operator to specify multiple options.
