MS-OXCDATA PropertyName NameSize RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I feel section 2.6.1 could be enhanced to say that the NameSize is the size of the Name field including the two terminating NULL characters.

  • Hello Andrew:

    We appreciate your feedback.

    We looked into the issue and believe that the document is correct as it states that the 'NameSize' field will contain number of bytes in 'Name' field which already includes the two terminating null character . 'NameSize' field will give number of following bytes to read which will include two zero bytes as well.

    Hence we believe that it's not required to add 'two terminating null character' text in 'NameSize' field. Let us know if our understanding is not correct.
