/images/arrow_right.png IGeneralFormRequest::AddNumericResult method
Adds a numerical result structure to the list of numerical result structures.

Such a result structure can be from the clinical as well as from the lab area but is inherently of numerical nature.

/images/arrow_right.png Calling argument description
[in] BSTR bstrStructName The variable name/placeholder of the structure.

Use the iterator pair GetFirstStructRole / GetNextStructRole to retrieve the variable name, the semantical typification and the status (defined or undefined) of all structures defined by the currently load PDF form.

[in] ResultCodeType eResultCodeType The used coding system in which the result is defined.
[in] BSTR bstrCode The code of the measurement defined in the used coding system.

While not imperative the preferable coding system for lab results is LOINC and SMERF for clinical results. Especially for lab results LOINC is the only guarantee that identifies lab measurements unambiguously and lab company independent.

[in] BSTR bstrName The name of the measurement.
[in] DATE dDate The date of the measurement
[in] BSTR bstrValue The numerical measurement value ASCII formatted - thus the full measurement result consist of eOperator*bstrValue*bstrUnit

Note that the formatting of numerical values in the PDF is cumbersome and partly impossible (no scientific notation available). Furthermore there is no possibility to extracted and propagate such formatting instructions from the PDF via the COM module to the calling software. Consequently, all values of the numerical result structure are supplied ASCII formatted to allow the calling software to supply the needed display formatting. E.g. the distant sphere in an eyeglass prescription should be formatted like "+ 1.25" which is impossible with a general formatting instruction.

[in] BSTR bstrUnit The unit in which the all values are expressed - thus the full measurement result consist of eOperator*bstrValue*bstrUnit

While not imperative the unit is preferably supplied in the UCUM system.

[in] BSTR bstrLowerReference The lower reference value ASCII formatted of the measurement expressed in the same unit as the value.

Supply an empty string if no lower reference value is available.

[in] BSTR bstrUpperReference The upper reference value ASCII formatted of the measurement expressed in the same unit as for the value.

Supply an empty string if no upper reference value is available.

[in] BSTR bstrRemark An optional remark
[out, retval] VARIANT_BOOL *pbStatus Return status of the method. If pbStatus is VARIANT_FALSE then an error occurred and GetAbortInfo should be called to retrieve the error string.
 
/images/arrow_right.png C/C++ return value
S_OK This value is returned if the function call was successful or if the return value of a boolean method signalling a true value. In this case the VARIANT_BOOL is set to VARIANT_TRUE.
S_FALSE This is the return value of a boolean method signalling a false return value. In this case the VARIANT_BOOL is set to VARIANT_FALSE.
E_name This value is returned if the function call was unsuccessful and an error exception was generated. Note that if you are using SmartPointers an exception is thrown under these conditions.
