TElMessageEncryptor.UseUndefSize

TElMessageEncryptor     


Filter: C#/Java  VB.NET  Pascal  C++  PHP  


This property allows or forbids the use of ASN.1 tags of undefined size.

Declaration

[C#/Java]
    bool UseUndefSize;

[VB.NET]
    Property UseUndefSize As Boolean

[Pascal]
    property UseUndefSize : boolean;

[C++]
    bool get_UseUndefSize();
    void set_UseUndefSize(bool Value);

[PHP]
    bool get_UseUndefSize()
    void set_UseUndefSize(bool $Value)

Description

    Set UseUndefSize to False to prevent use of ASN.1 tags with undefined size. Usually PKCS#7 messages are handled correctly when such tags are used. However some ASN.1 parsers (S/MIME handler in Outlook Express, security plugins of Adobe Acrobat) can't correctly handle such tags. If you are targeting such software, you need this property.
    Default value is True (use of such tags is allowed).
