GetFirstProperty Method

This method returns the name of the first property in a property set.




Not applicable



A string representing the name of the first property in a property set


GetFirstProperty() retrieves the name of the first property, in order of definition, of a business service. Use GetFirstProperty and GetNextProperty to retrieve the name of a property. You can then use the retrieved name as an argument to GetProperty to retrieve the property value, or with SetProperty to assign property values.

This example uses GetFirstProperty to get the first property, then retrieves all subsequent properties using GetNextProperty. The loop terminates when GetNextProperty retrieves a null.

function Service_PreInvokeMethod (MethodName, Inputs, Outputs)
   var propName = "";
   var propVal = "";

   propName = Inputs.GetFirstProperty();

   // stay in loop if the property name is not an empty string
   while (propName != "") {
      propVal = Inputs.GetProperty(propName);

      // if a property with the same name does not exist
      // add the name value pair to the output
      if (!Outputs.PropertyExists(propName)) {
         Outputs.SetProperty(propName, propVal);

      propName = Inputs.GetNextProperty();

   return (CancelOperation);
