_NewEnum Property of the IFPCRefs Interface

The _NewEnum property gets an enumerator object for the collection. An enumerator object provides serial access to the elements of the collection.

HRESULT get__NewEnum(
	IUnknown* ppEnum



Address of an interface pointer that on return points to the IUnknown interface of an enumerator object that implements an IEnumVARIANT interface for the collection. An interface pointer to the IEnumVARIANT interface of the enumerator object can be retrieved by calling QueryInterface on the IUnknown interface returned.

Return Value

This property method returns S_OK if the call is successful; otherwise, it returns an error code.

[Visual Basic]
Property _NewEnum As IUnknown

Property Value

Reference to an enumerator object that provides serial access to the elements of the collection.

Example Code

This VBScript subprocedure retrieves the FPCPolicyRule object representing a specified access rule that is defined in the containing Forefront TMG array. If the access rule applies only to certain protocols or to all IP traffic except certain protocols, the subprocedure retrieves the FPCRefs collection accessed through the SpecifiedProtocols property for the access rule and implicitly uses the _NewEnum property to iterate through the collection display the name of each protocol to which the rule applies or each protocol that is excluded from the access rule. It does not include complete error handling.
Sub IterateSpecifiedProtocols(ruleName)
	' Define the constants needed.
	Const fpcPolicyRuleAccess = 0
	Const fpcAllIpTraffic = 0
	Const fpcSpecifiedProtocols = 1
	' Create the root object.
	Set root = CreateObject("FPC.Root")
	' Declare the other objects needed.
	Dim isaArray	 ' An FPCArray object
	Dim rule		 ' An FPCPolicyRule object
	Dim references	 ' An FPCRefs collection
	Dim reference	' An FPCRef object
	' Get references to the array object and the
	' specified access rule.
	Set isaArray = root.GetContainingArray()
	Set rule = isaArray.ArrayPolicy.PolicyRules.Item(ruleName)
	If rule.Type <> fpcPolicyRuleAccess Then
		WScript.Echo "The " & ruleName & " policy rule is not an access rule."
	End If
	' Inform the user that the rule applies to all protocols or get
	' a reference to the collection of references to the specified protocols.
	If rule.AccessProperties.ProtocolSelectionMethod = fpcAllIpTraffic Then
		WScript.Echo "The " & ruleName & " access rule applies to all protocols."
		Set references = rule.AccessProperties.SpecifiedProtocols
		' Display the names of the protocols to which the rule applies
		' or the protocols that are excluded from the rule.
		If rule.AccessProperties.ProtocolSelectionMethod = fpcSpecifiedProtocols Then
			WScript.Echo "The " & ruleName & " access rule applies to the following protocols:"
			For Each reference In references
				WScript.Echo "	" & reference.Name 
			WScript.Echo "The following protocols are excluded from the " & ruleName & " access rule:"
			For Each reference In references
				WScript.Echo "	" & reference.Name 
		End If
	End If
End Sub
