Intelligence Server SDK Kit (part 3)

Note: Part 3 includes the work done so far in Part 1 and Part 2.

You probably found out by now that the Type and SubType properties of an IDSSObjectInfo (or similar class) return a numeric value. Call me picky, but if I were to build an application I would rather use layman’s terms such as Attribute or Drill Map instead of SubType 3072 or SubType 14336.

This third part of our tutorial offers a great way to convert these not-so-intuitive numerical values into their English meaning, by using a custom made function called DSS2Name.

You can download the VB6 files here.
