Compare the data in a buffer with a stored object.
object.CompareData( ObjectLabel, Buffer )
- A string which specifies the label of the object that should be
compared against the contents of the buffer.
- A string or byte array which contains the data that should be
compared against the contents of the object. If the buffer contains
binary data (particularly data that contains embedded null bytes)
this parameter must be a byte array. String values should only be
used for text comparisons.
A value of True is returned if the contents of the buffer matches
the contents of the specified object.
Otherwise, a value of False is returned and the LastError
property will return the specific cause of the failure.
The CompareData method performs a binary comparison of the data in the
specified buffer with the contents of the storage object on the
server. The amount of data in the buffer must match the size of the
stored object exactly, or this method will fail. Partial comparisons
are not supported by this method.
If you need to compare the contents of a file with a stored object,
use the CompareFile method.
