Checks whether a file tag exists.

Syntax

cbmemdrive.fileTagExists(fileName, tagId, tagName, [callback])

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:

err.code
err.message

Remarks

This method checks whether a file tag with the specified TagId or TagName is attached to the file, directory, or alternate stream specified by FileName. If the specified file tag exists, this method returns true; otherwise it returns false.

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

To check for a raw file tag, pass its Id for TagId and pass empty string for TagName. To check for a typed file tag, pass its name for TagName and pass 0 for TagId. If values are provided for both TagId and TagName, this method .

Please refer to the File Tags topic for more information.

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