Noob Question Regarding c#/.NET and .NET Bindings

[ Edited ]

Hi guys, I'm developing some apps in C#. I have used older iterations of the SDK whereby you parsed through you NaElement objects. Now, it seems like this is not required anymore if one uses the .NET bindings. They seem to have wrapped up all the iter-start/iter-end functionaility in simpler APIs. Is that correct?

Bump

Re: Noob Question Regarding c#/.NET and .NET Bindings

Yes, that's right. This change is not specific to .NET/C# though. The API behaviour has been changed.

Re: Noob Question Regarding c#/.NET and .NET Bindings

Great! So you can use either these new APIs in C# or the older ones from ManageOntap.dll ?

Re: Noob Question Regarding c#/.NET and .NET Bindings

It will depend on what software version is running on the system. Accordingly you will have to use tha appropriate library to make calls.

Re: Noob Question Regarding c#/.NET and .NET Bindings

Ok, so for the more modern OnTAP versions, generally easier to program using the new .NET bindings and for older version (or to maintain compatability for tools across newer and older verisons on OnTap) use the old 'iter-start' style?

Re: Noob Question Regarding c#/.NET and .NET Bindings

Yes, that's right. You can use a system-get-version to check version in your application and have if-else section to deal with the iters.

Awesome! Thanks for all your help.
