Return value



To send a cover page with a fax document, the following are required:

  • The SendCoverpage property must be equal to TRUE.
  • The CoverpageName property must specify a valid cover page file.
In addition, the ServerCoverpage property must be equal to TRUE if the cover page file is a common cover page file.

You can call the ServerCoverpage method to determine whether the fax server is configured to permit personal cover pages.

The IFaxDoc::get_CoverpageName method allocates the memory required for the buffer pointed to by the pVal parameter. The client application must call the SysFreeString function to deallocate the resources associated with this parameter. For more information, see Freeing Fax Resources.
