 ‘The example below demonstrates how to do a WebDAV SEARCH with range headers.



Public Function GetItemListXML(sHREF, sUserName, sPassword, sDepth)
    Dim sQuery ‘ As String
    Dim sText ‘As String
   
    sQuery = “<?xml version=’1.0′?>” & _
       “<g:searchrequest xmlns:g=’DAV:’>” & _
       “<g:sql>SELECT “”DAV:displayname””, ” & _
       “””DAV:href””  ” & _
       “FROM SCOPE(‘SHALLOW TRAVERSAL OF “”” & sHREF & “””‘)” & _
       ” WHERE “”DAV:isfolder”” = false  AND “”DAV:ishidden”” = false” & _
       “</g:sql>” & _
       “</g:searchrequest>”
   
    sText = DoDavRequest(“SEARCH”, sQuery, sHREF, sUserName, sPassword, sDepth)
               
    GetItemListXML = sText
End Function


Public Function DoDavRequest(sType, sQuery, sHREF, sUserName, sPassword, sDepth)
    Dim HttpWebRequest ‘As MSXML2.XMLHTTP30
    Set HttpWebRequest = CreateObject(“microsoft.xmlhttp”) ‘ = New MSXML2.XMLHTTP30
   
    Dim sText ‘As String
    ‘ Open the folder
    HttpWebRequest.open sType, sHREF, False, sUserName, sPassword
   
    ‘ Set up request headers
    HttpWebRequest.setRequestHeader “Content-Type”, “text/xml”
    HttpWebRequest.setRequestHeader “Depth”, “0”
    HttpWebRequest.setRequestHeader “Range”, sDepth
    ‘HttpWebRequest.setRequestHeader “Range”, “rows=10-20,40-50” ‘ Example of multiple ranges


    ‘ Send the query
    HttpWebRequest.send (sQuery)
   
    sText = HttpWebRequest.ResponseText
   
    Set HttpWebRequest = Nothing


    DoDavRequest = sText
End Function



Dim sHREF
Dim sUserName
Dim sPassword
Dim sRet


sUserName = “Administrator”    ‘ TODO: change
sPassword  = “test”    ‘ TODO: change
sHREF = “http://myexserver/exchange/administrator/inbox” ‘ TODO: change
 
sDepth = “rows=0-3”
sRet = GetItemListXML(sHREF, sUserName, sPassword, sDepth)
wscript.echo sRet


sDepth = “rows=4-7”
sRet = GetItemListXML(sHREF, sUserName, sPassword, sDepth)
wscript.echo sRet
