TripleDESFileEncrypt Method

Cryptocx v7 User Guide


TripleDESFileEncrypt Method

This is the method that you use to encrypt files using the 168 bit 3DES encryption algorithm (3 * 56 Bit DES keys = 168 bit 3DES)

This method uses the standard 3DES encryption algorithm.



Encrypts a file with 3DES algorithm.


x = object.TripleDESFileEncrypt

The syntax of the TripleDESFileEncrypt method has these parts:

Part Description
object A Cryptocx v7 control.
x A string that becomes either "TRUE" or "Error: xxx" where xxx is the error message.

Remarks If for whatever reason the method fails to complete, the method will return some text stating exactly what has gone wrong, if the method runs ok then the output from the method will = "TRUE".

You have to specify the 3  - DES keys to use, DESKey1, DESKey2 and DESKey3


"TRUE" or a string stating what went wrong beginning with "Error:"

Example Sample Visual Basic Code to 3DES decrypt a file:

Where Cryptocx1 is an instance of a Cryptocx Control.

'' 3DES Encrypt a File

Dim theResult As String
Dim Cryptocx As New EasyByte_Software.Cryptocxv7

Cryptocx.LicenseKey = "DEMO"

Cryptocx.DESKey1 = Des3Key1.Text
Cryptocx.DESKey2 = Des3Key2.Text
Cryptocx.DESKey3 = Des3Key3.Text

Cryptocx.SourceFile = txt3DESSourceFile.Text
Cryptocx.DestinationFile = txt3DESDestinationFile.Text

theResult = Cryptocx.TripleDESFileEncrypt

'' Check to see what has happened (if the encryption went ok without errors)

If theResult = "TRUE" Then
  '' Ok, the Encryption went well with no errors
  MsgBox theResult
End If

'' Free up Memory Resources

Set Cryptocx = Nothing
