LoadAccelerators (Windows CE 5.0)

Send Feedback

This function loads the specified accelerator table.

HACCELLoadAccelerators(HINSTANCEhInstance, LPCTSTRlpTableName );


  • hInstance
    Handle to an instance of the module whose executable file contains the accelerator table to load.
  • lpTableName
    Long pointer to a null-terminated string that names the accelerator table to load. Alternatively, this parameter can specify the resource identifier of an accelerator-table resource in the low-order word and zero in the high-order word. The MAKEINTRESOURCE macro can be used to create this value.

Return Values

The handle to the loaded accelerator table indicates success. NULL indicates failure. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.


The resource is not copied into RAM, so it may not be modified.

If the accelerator table has not yet been loaded, the function loads it from the specified executable file.

Accelerator tables loaded from resources are freed automatically when the application terminates.


OS Versions: Windows CE 1.0 and later.
Header: Winuser.h.
