Method MIMEContent():attachAlternative() Professional

Attach MIMEContent object as alternative content

:attachAlternative( <oMIMEContent> ) --> lSuccess
<oMIMEContent> is an object of the class MIMEContent or an object of a class that is derived from MIMEContent.

The method :attachAlternative() returns .T. (true), if the object that is passed as a parameter was successfully attached. In case of an error, .F. (false) is returned.


In order to attach an object of class MIMEContent to another object of the same class, :attachAlternative() can be used. Calling this method automatically transforms a single-part content to a multi-part content, if required.

With :attachAlternative(), it is possible to compose e-mails with alternative content. When sending html e-mails, for example, a text version of the html content can be attached using this method. Thus, the e-mail can also be viewed by clients that cannot display html pages. Please refer to the sample section of the MIMEMessageclass function for an example.
