Then you can get the length to know how long the value will be. Then fetch the actual id with the get id call; it will store the value in the id passed in. The get id call will return the number of bytes copied into into the id string. The size of the id string should be passed in to the “length” field. The number of bytes actually copied will be returned by the call. If the number of bytes is more than the length of the id field, then only “length” bytes are filled in.
