NdisUnicodeStringToAnsiString macro

The NdisUnicodeStringToAnsiString function converts a given counted Unicode string into a counted ANSI string. The translation conforms to the current system locale information.

   _as,
   _us
);

Parameters

_as

A pointer to a caller-allocated buffer in which this function should return the converted ANSI string.

Return Value

Remarks

The caller must allocate storage for both the source and destination strings and release these buffers as soon as the strings are no longer needed. The buffer at SourceString must be at least twice the size of that at DestinationString .
