How to check out a file using SCM Anywhere Standalone SDK?

In this article, we take a VB project as example.

1. Install SCM Anywhere Standalone Client on your machine. SCM Anywhere Standalone Windows Client comes with the COM SDK .

2. Please add 2 dll files, "SCMSSDK.dll" and "SCMS.Core.dll", to the project. In Visual Studio | Project | Add Reference | Browse tab, browse to the SCM Anywhere Standalone Client installation folder, highlight and select "SCMSSDK.dll" and "SCMS.Core.dll", and click OK.

3. You can use the ConnectToServer() function to connect to your SCM Anywhere Standalone Server, and then use the CheckoutFiles() function to check out the files.

Here is a sample in VB:
Imports com.dynamsoft.scm.SCMSDK

Public Class Form1

    Dim sdkObject As New SCMSSDK()
    Dim bobjTrial As New
    Dim iobjLeftTrialDays As New
    Dim iobjLeftPasswordDays As New
    Dim strobjError As New
    Dim ResultValue As Long
    Dim listCheckoutServerFileFullName As New List(Of String)
    Dim listCheckoutLocalFileFullName As New List(Of String)
    Dim stDiffMergeParameter As New com.dynamsoft.scm.SCMSDK.Framework.SDKDiffMergeParameter()
    Dim listItemOperateResults As New System.Collections.Generic.List(Of com.dynamsoft.scm.SCMSDK.Framework.SDKItemOperatorResult)

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

        'connect to server

        ResultValue = sdkObject.ConnectToServer("", 7771, False, "admin", "", 0, "", 0, "", "", bobjTrial, iobjLeftTrialDays, iobjLeftPasswordDays, strobjError)

        If ResultValue <> 0 Then
            MsgBox("Failed to connect to server. " + strobjError.GetValue())
            MsgBox("Succeed in connecting to server.")
        End If

    End Sub

    Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
        'check out
        ResultValue = sdkObject.CheckoutFiles("Default", listCheckoutServerFileFullName, listCheckoutLocalFileFullName, "check out a file", False, 2, 0, 1, 2, stDiffMergeParameter, listItemOperateResults, strobjError)

        If ResultValue <> 0 Then
            MsgBox("Failed to check out. " + strobjError.GetValue())
            MsgBox("Succeed in checking out.")
        End If
    End Sub

End Class
