This read-only property returns an enumeration of type pisdkCollectiveConnectionType indicating how the current server is connected – as a member or as the collective.
The object placeholder is an object expression that evaluates to a IPICollective interface, obtained from a Server object.
The pisdkCollectiveConnectionType enumeration constants can take the following values:
|cctCollective||Connected as a collective.|
|cctMember||Connected to only one member of the collective.|
In general applications connect to a collective using a server from the Known Servers Table which represents the Collective as a unit. Using the MemberOpen method it is possible to address specific members of a collective. This is mostly done for administrative purposes.
In addition to generic errors (such as Out of Memory), the following errors may occur:
|pseSERVERNOTCOLLECTIVE||The Server is not a collective|
