There are no parameters for this function.


An array of nodes that represent items with non valid formats.


The following function walks through the form and uses CheckValidFormats to determine which nodes have the correct format. This function assumes that you are passing in the root node of the form.
   Sub CheckFormats
      Dim theForm ' object
      Dim invalidItems ' IFormNodePList
      Dim theItem ' IFormNodeP
			Dim theReference ' String
      invalidItems = theForm.checkValidFormats();
      If invalidItems == Nothing Then
         Response.Write("All the items have valid formats."
         For Each theItem in invalidItems
            theReference = theItem.GetReferenceEx(vbNullString, Nothing, _ 
               Nothing, False)
         Response.Write("The item "theReference" has an invalid format".)
      End If
   End Sub
