// Connect to Sample Vault using M-Files Client.
var mfilesClient = new ActiveXObject( "MFilesAPI.MFilesClientApplication" );
var vault = mfilesClient.BindToVault( "Sample Vault", 0, true, false );

// Get the result from the "ObjectTypeIsOK" method.
var result = vault.ExtensionMethodOperations.ExecuteVaultExtensionMethod( "ObjectTypeIsOK", "3" );
if( result )
{
  // OK to proceed.
} else {
  // Display an error.
