ResolveLink Method

Retrieves the destination of a symbolic link.


cbdrive.resolveLink(linkName, normalize, [callback])


The 'callback' parameter specifies a function which will be called when the operation completes (or an error is encountered). If the 'callback' parameter is not specified, then the method will block and will not return until the operation completes (or an error is encountered).

The callback for this method is defined as:

function(err, data){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'data' is the value returned by the method.

'err' has 2 properties which hold detailed information:



This method retrieves the destination pointed to by the symbolic link specified by LinkName.

The value passed for LinkName must be a vault-local absolute path.

As the CreateLink method's documentation describes, symbolic links can be created with either relative or absolute vault-local paths. The Normalize parameter specifies whether the class should normalize the specified link's destination before returning it. Passing true will ensure a vault-local absolute path is always returned; passing false will cause the original destination path to be returned.

Note: This method can only be called when Active is true.
