encode_to_string Method

Encodes to string.


def encode_to_string() -> None: ...


This method encodes to string. Same as encode_to_file but the encoded data is held in the message property rather than saved to a file.

This method encodes the data given in parts properties into a MIME message. The Message gets stored in message and message_headers using the values optionally given in parts properties. To encode several objects into a MIME envelope, the user should first clear any old values left in the parts properties by calling reset_data.

The class will check each item in parts properties (first decoded file and then decoded string) for the data to encode.

The encoded message will be stored in the message property; the message headers will be held by message_headers.

Example (Encoding Data)

MIMEControl.PartCount = 2
MIMEControl.PartDecodedString(0) = "This is plain text data"
MIMEControl.PartEncoding(0) = peQuotedPrintable
MIMEControl.PartContentType(0) = "text/plain"
MIMEControl.PartDecodedFile(1) = "C:\filename.txt"
